WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?
The 8th Street Reconstruction Project is being done to:
Replace pavement and sidewalks that are in very poor condition
Improve pedestrian safety and pedestrian amenities, including lighting, landscaping, enhanced crosswalks, and other improvements.
Improve transit operations and facilities by implementing Arterial Bus Rapid Transit (ABRT), in cooperation with Metro Transit.
Refer to Metro Transit's Arterial BRT website for more information.
