Seen construction work on Spring Garden Street? It’s a new bus stop being built by the City of Greensboro.
A bus stop will be located on the eastbound side, across from the School of Education building, and will be longer than the existing bus stops in front of the Visitor’s Center and the Graham Building. The longer design will allow two buses to park simultaneously, reducing traffic congestion.
Four willow oak trees were removed, but four landscaped “tree islands” are being planned, and they which will have new willow oak trees.
This construction project – which has necessitated a detour onto Oakland – is scheduled to conclude around Aug. 10.
HEAT buses will use the stop immediately.‘Park and Ride’ buses will use the stop during the construction period of the Pedestrian Underpass project.
