Bankhead, Doraville, Kensington and Indian Creek stations are all under construction, with the first two due to open in 1992 and the other two in 1993. By 1995, the North Line will be extended seven miles, with new stations at Buckhead, Medical Center and Dunwoody. By 1997, another 1.8 miles will be added with new stations at Sandy Springs and North Springs. The article describes the specifics of each planned station, including costs and proposed facilities.
