SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The intersection of South Salina Street and East Adams Street is a busy area, and a lot of people pass the construction site on a daily basis. That's why many have been wondering when the hub transfer station will be complete.
Officials said some of the cement work wasn't able to be completed in the previous construction season and the work will resume once temperatures warm up.
Once the facility is complete, it will accommodate 22 Centro buses at once and allow passengers to get on and off the bus out of the elements. It will also allow passengers to wait for the bus indoors and more conveniently find routes and information.
Much of the exterior work of the facility is complete, and work continues on flooring and the interior lobby.
"Some of the work that had to be performed, we couldn't get completed in last construction season. A lot of the cement that needs to be poured will not be able to get done until this coming spring once the weather breaks. So, that put us behind a little bit. But, we're anticipating by June, we'll all be ready to go," said Steven Koegel, Centro Marketing and Communications Director.
Some people have more recently raised questions about the facilities features for people with disabilities. Centro officials said the facility will fully comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act regulations.
The project is expected to be complete by mid to late June. For more information, visit www.centro.org.
