Grand Boulevard is one of the City's major north-south thoroughfares and the #70 Grand MetroBus route is the busiest on the Metro Transit system. Connected with the Grand MetroLink Station, the Grand Bridge is one of the region's busiest transit hubs. The bridge's reconstruction and the Metro Transit's extensive renovation have achieved a significant infrastructure improvement to the area. The bridge will now be more conducive to cyclists, pedestrians, and Metro buses while also increasing capacity of personal vehicles. The improvements to the MetroBus areas on the bridge deck and the new Scott Avenue Transit Plaza beneath the bridge have added commuter parking, increased lighting, and improved the entire public transit experience. Mayor Slay, John Nations, and various City stakeholders are proud to celebrate the completion of this major project.
