Transit Oriented Development in RI

May  24, 2013

     The city of Rock Island and Metro Link have joined forces for a project downtown. Thursday they broke ground for new apartments and a new transit station, at the corner of 20th Street and First Avenue.

     The Locks will cost 6 million dollars and include 34, one, two, and three bedroom apartments. And next door the 2 million dollar transit center will allow bus riders to wait for buses indoors, and off the street. This will replace the current transfer point on 3rd Avenue, near city hall.

     Construction is scheduled to start this summer, and be completed early next year.
