Project officials say everyday they’re making progress and construction for the DTA Multimodal Transportation Center is on schedule.
About 70 crew members are on site pouring in hundreds of yards of concrete and working on other engineering features that will be integrated into the 150,000 square foot facility.
The $28 million structure will have a modern design with 9 bus loading bays, a safe and enclosed waiting area for passengers and a parking ramp holding 410 parking spaces.
“We’re incorporating a lot of the new technology,” Duluth Transit Authority General Manager Dennis Jensen said. “They’ll be able to look at a sign and tell what time they’re next bus is going to be there within minutes, when its leaving. We’ll have public announcements. We’re trying to make riding the bus as convenient as possible for the citizens of Duluth.”
The transportation center will also house a police station and be used by Jefferson Lines and Arrowhead Transit.
In June the northwest passage will be shut down to start on the interiors of the building.
Construction for the transit center is expected to be complete this December.
