Cemeteries Transit Center Project On Schedule, Under Budget

The Cemeteries Transit Center Project is moving along with construction crews completing the streetcar tracks, transit shelters, and the covered pedestrian walkways. 

"The project continues to maintain its progress to achieve on-time and under-budget completion," said RTA's Director of Infrastructure, Martin Pospisil. "The RTA's general contractor and subcontractors have been working tirelessly to complete the construction as quickly as possible."

Pospisil noted that the entire project team has been working hard to navigate the challenges and unanticipated conflicts that have occurred since the project started at the end of July. 

The transit center will help riders on the Canal-Cemeteries streetcar transfer more easily to the Lakeview, Hayne, and Jackson/Esplanade routes as well as the JeT system. Additionally, it will allow pedestrians to cross City Park Ave and Canal Blvd more safely.
