METRO BUS STOPS
  • Bus stops near future ORBT sites have been relocated for pedestrian and rider safety during construction. They will remain in the relocated location until ORBT begins operation next spring.

ABOUT CONSTRUCTION
  • Crews will work in tandem on platforms on the north side of Dodge Street from the Westroads Transit Center to downtown, where they will shift to the south side of Douglas and work west.
  • To expedite construction, the team may be working on as many as 15 stations simultaneously, with anywhere from 6-8 road closures at once.
  • Construction is being phased to limit impacts as much as possible, such as manufacturing canopies off site to shorten the impact period and constructing only one side of the street at a given time.
  • Construction crews will be rebuilding both the sidewalk and the traffic lane during station construction, and in many cases they will be unable to install temporary sidewalks due to limited right of way. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Pedestrians are encouraged to use alternate routes until construction at each site is completed. Sidewalk closures will be indicated with signage. Pedestrian access to intersections and crosswalks will be maintained as much as possible.
