Denton to hold public meeting about downtown transit center
The meeting will take place on Monday, December 8th, 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM at the Denton Central Fire Station.
The City of Denton and the Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA) will be hosting public meeting to review conceptual plans for the proposed Downtown Denton Transit Center to be constructed at 604 East Hickory. The meeting will take place on Monday, December 8th, 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM at the Denton Central Fire Station, 321 E. Hickory Street.
The public is invited to attend and visit with representatives from the City of Denton and DCTA on the proposed facility design and development timeline. Preliminary design schematics and proposed site plan will be available for viewing.
In 2005, the City of Denton received a $3.1 million federal grant for the design and construction of the Downtown Denton Transit Center. The facility will be constructed on land currently owned by the City and will be operated by DCTA. The Transit Center is being designed jointly by the City and DCTA to support the operations of the DCTA Connect, Access and Express bus service and will compliment proposed rail service to Downtown Denton area. The Transit Center will provide passenger amenities such as public restrooms, air conditioned & heated waiting areas, DCTA ticket sales, a public plaza and streetscape enhancements at the intersection of Railroad and Hickory. The facility is scheduled to open in summer 2010.
