ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Atlanta officials said they will unveil plans for a new parking garage to be located at the current eight-acre parking lot adjacent to Zoo Atlanta in Grant Park.

The Grant Park Gateway Project, as the new parking Garage will be named is expected to address parking demands and improve safety in the Boulevard Avenue area.

The City of Atlanta Department of Parks and Recreation plans to invest $48 million on the project, which they said will also reduce traffic congestion and improve overall safety in the area.

The mayor, along with officials from the Atlanta Department of Parks and Recreation and City Council Member Carla Smith, will announce the Grant Park Gateway during a press conference on Monday at 10:30 a.m.
