SANDAG began construction Wednesday of a $65 million bus rapid transit project along the State Route 15 corridor in the Mid-City area.
The two-year Centerline project will build new station platforms, as well as dedicated bus transit lanes, within the State Route 15 median from just north of Interstate 805 to just north of Interstate 8.
The freeway-level stations at University Avenue and El Cajon Boulevard will include customized shelters, next vehicle arrival signs, lighting, elevators, stairs, elevated walkways, security cameras, and other architectural enhancements.
“Last year, we opened three new Rapid transit lines — one in Mid-City and two along the I-15 corridor,” said SANDAG Vice Chair and County Supervisor Ron Roberts. “This year, with the start of Centerline project construction, we are continuing to expand our regional transit system to make public transit a more attractive choice.”
The Metropolitan Transit System‘s new Rapid bus services features new equipment that makes limited stops and provides fast, frequent service. SANDAG is the regional planning agency for the San Diego area.
