San Diego starts work at Transit Center

Posted on February 17, 2010

Using federal stimulus funds, SANDAG, the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) and the City of La Mesa have begun work on a project to enhance pedestrian and ADA access at the Grossmont Transit Center.

The construction project will add elevators and a pedestrian bridge, making it easier for transit patrons to move back and forth to the busy Grossmont Center-area businesses on a mesa about 40 feet above the center and Trolley station.

The project will cost a total of $8 million, including $4 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds. The city of La Mesa contributed $540,000. The rest of the funds come from federal and state transportation programs.

SANDAG will oversee the construction, being done by Riha Construction. MTS will maintain and operate the facility.

Additional enhancements will include a bridge landing at the mesa, new paving, a colonnade flanking the elevator tower, furniture, landscaping, lighting, and enhanced busway pavement. Bicycle lockers also will be installed near the Trolley platform.

Work is expected to be complete in summer of 2011.
