Planning and design for a new station on the METRO Red Line at the Cedar Grove Transit Station are underway.
The Cedar Grove Transit Station will be modified to add a new passenger platform in the center of Highway 77, with an enclosed skyway connecting back to the existing station area on Nicols Road. Once work is completed, transit riders will use the skyway to get to the center platform and buses will serve the station without exiting the highway.
These changes will greatly improve travel times for METRO Red Line riders, as well as riders on some express routes on the State Highway 77/Cedar Avenue corridor. Today these buses must exit the highway, travel through the neighborhood on surface streets and then backtrack to re-enter the highway, which takes several minutes in each direction.
Design: Fall 2015
Construction: Spring 2016
Station Opening: Winter 2016 - 2017
