On December 20, Metro will temporarily relocate an existing bus stop at Cesar E. Chavez Avenue and Vignes Street to the southwest corner of the intersection, allowing for the construction of a new transit pavilion. The project will convert what is now an underused site into a new plaza featuring shelter for bus passengers, real time transit information, lighting, bicycle amenities, and landscaping.
Improvements are also slated for three other stops at Cesar Chavez's intersections with Vignes and Alameda Street, including the replacement of bus shelters, trash cans, and benches.
Construction is expected to be completed in late Spring 2020.
The project is one of several investments Metro is making on the perimeter of Union Station, including a new center-median platform for the Silver Line and a proposed plaza and pedestrian esplanade along Alameda Street.
In the longer term, Metro is planning run-through tracks, an expanded passenger concourse, and new commercial development at the historic rail terminal.
