Construction will get underway May 21 on a revamped bus stop at the northeast corner of East Sherman Street and North 7th Avenue.The project will feature the addition of a passenger shelter, new sidewalks and crosswalks, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant ramps, landscaping, and a digital sign that will feature next bus information.“The stop services City Hall, the federal courthouse, and Optimist Park to name a few destinations,” said Maggie Clark, Project Manager. “The new features will make the stop more comfortable for the public and bring it into compliance with the ADA.”The work is scheduled to be complete by July but due to unforeseen circumstances or inclement weather, the project may be delayed.During construction, there will be intermittent lane closures and the public is asked to avoid the area. Officials thank the public for their patience and cooperation during the construction period.The total cost of the project is $250,000 with $200,000 coming from an Idaho Transportation Department Elderly and Disabled Grant and $25,000 from the City of Pocatello’s Community Development Block Grant. The remaining $25,000 is in-kind labor by the City of Pocatello Engineering Department in the form of design, bid, and construction oversight.For more information on this or other City of Pocatello Public Works projects, visit projects.pocatello.us.
