BRT Coming to a Northside Street near you?

The first (heavily modified) 10.5 mile corridor will extend from downtown, north along Boulevard Street, to Gateway Mall, continuing north along Norwood Avenue/Lem Turner Road, and ending south of Armsdale Road (near I-295).
The slides below are highlights from the BRT North Corridor Environmental Assessment Study currently in progress.
