Improvements will include the installation of new bus shelters, sidewalks, concrete pads, crosswalks and trash receptacles at the following locations:
Food Lion, W. 15th St. between GA Hwy. 196 and Parkland Blvd. (Bus Stop ID 4)
Savannah Technical College, 100 Technology Dr. (Bus Stop ID 12)

Construction activities will take place Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Occasionally, construction activities may necessitate weekend work and temporary road closures. If road closures are necessary throughout construction, detours will be provided, and flagmen will assist motorists. Motorists are encouraged to use caution when driving in these areas. Weather permitting, construction should be completed by August. This project represents a $325,000 investment into the community.
Funding is provided by the U.S. Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Additional transit infrastructure projects are expected and will be executed as funding becomes available.
