Anyone know? Times Square, Park and State are all fenced off. There were a few contractor-types walking around, but couldn't really tell what's going on.

The Detroit Department of Transportation on Friday plans to break ground on the 25,000-square-foot, $15 million center, expected to be complete within 18 months.



From an article written in November of 2005, that would make 18 months right about now...just a little behind...

As long as a new thread was started on the transit center, anyone have some good pics to post on it?

When NY time square was at its worst they probably both had junkies and dealers there. Beyond that, no.

They can't get cops on the buses so it figures.
Nothing gets done in a hurry around here.

Down there about half an hour ago. No pics, sorry.

The area for the terminal is fenced off. Porter potties are placed around the perimeter of the area. My guess is that work starts within 3 weeks.
