Engineering and design activities are underway for the Lewis Street Transit Hub Rehabilitation Project. The Hub, pictured here, is getting a much-needed facelift! When complete, the site will feature new pavement, sidewalks, and a dedicated bus lane. The site will also feature safety improvements, such as improved lighting, and ADA-accessible walkways. CSPDC staff are working with engineering consultants from Kimley-Horn and Associates to finalize the design and construction plans for the Hub.
In June, staff reviewed the 60% design plans and participated in a Value-Engineering workshop hosted by the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT). The CSPDC presented the plans to the City of Staunton’s Historic Review Commission on Tuesday, July 25 to seek a Certificate of Appropriateness. The CSPDC will seek to incorporate design elements, where feasible, that are consistent with city features in the Historic District. Once the CSPDC receives a Certificate of Appropriateness, design plans will be finalized and submitted to the City for approval.
The engineering and design phase is moving along as expected and we hope to issue a contract for construction by fall, with construction to begin soon after.
Background: In March of 2022, the CSPDC was awarded a 5339 Bus and Bus Facilities Grant from the Federal Transit Administration to rehabilitate the lot.
