New Blake Transit Center Still A Month From Opening

WEMU's Andrew Cluley reports on the current timeline for the opening of the new Blake Transit Center in Ann Arbor.

The new Blake Transit Center in downtown Ann Arbor is likely a month from opening.  

 Even when the Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority opens the building buses will continue to load passengers in temporary locations until spring.  That's because the driveway for the buses won't be completed until then.

New Blake Transit Center to be Finished in January, On Budget

The Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority expects to complete work on the new Blake Transit Center in late January. 

CEO Michael Ford says they will talk with Dennis Dahlmann who is buying the former YMCA site next to the transit center.  Ford says hopefully the development and the Transit Center can be mutually beneficial.   Ford says they will also have discussions about portable trailers that are on the Y-Lot as a temporary operations hub for the transit center during construction.

Ford says only about 30,000 dollars remain in the contingency fund but hopefully the project will come in on budget.

WEMU's Andrew Cluley has this update on the new Blake Transit Center construction project.
