Olympics-related construction in Atlanta isn't limited to sports facilities. The city is also gearing up for the 1996 Summer Games by accomplishing some major transportation infrastructure projects. Athletes and visitors from around the world coming to Atlanta for the 1996 Summer Olympics will enter the city through a new front door--the $300 million-plus international concourse at Hartsfield Atlanta International Airport. To help them get around the city after they arrive, the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Agency (MARTA) is racing to finish a three station extension of the rail system's North Line in a fast track project scheduled for completion just a month before the Games begin in mid-July 1996.
