Transit center groundbreaking setThe City of Mesa will officially break ground for the new Sycamore Transit Center, Saturday, January 27, at 9:30 AM. The transit center is located on the northwest corner of Main and Sycamore, just east of Dobson Road.

This facility will serve as Mesa’s transit portal to the high capacity, METRO light rail system. It will provide bus interface connections for several current and future routes including Mesa’s future Bus Rapid Transit Service.

The facility offers an automobile drop-off area, futuristic architecture and design complementing the end-of-the-line station, seven bus bays with shaded pedestrian seating, a double-unit water fountain, information kiosk, bicycle racks and lockers, METRO ticket vending machines, trees, landscaping, and three north/south pedestrian connections to the adjacent 812 space park-and-ride facility scheduled for construction in 2008.

“The design team of OTAK/Architekton developed a beautiful architectural facility which will provide for the safety of pedestrians, bicyclists, automobiles, and buses,” Mesa Vice Mayor Claudia Walters said. “This is an exciting opportunity for the community and a continuance of the area’s revitalization.”

Several speakers including: Vice Mayor Walters, Mike Ladino, General Counsel for METRO, Les Presmyk, Board Co-Chair for Valley Metro and Dave Richins, representing the Mesa Grande neighborhood will make comments and be available for one-on-one interviews.
