This project involved the construction of a new bus shelter on Southland Drive. It was part of the Art in Motion (AIM) smART Shelter Project financed by the federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) program and administered through the Kentucky Office of Local Programs – a program that utilizes federal highway money to fund multi-modal projects that improve air quality and ease traffic congestion. The shelter design was chosen through a public design contest held by AIM. Work included installation of bike racks for multi-modal connections, glass panels, and the placement of a rain garden system on the roof for diverting storm water. The design included twisted rebar columns that mimic a tree-like structure leading up to the rain garden roof.
