Market East, once the home of Market Square Arena turned an unfortunate wasteland of parking lots, is ripe with action lately. If you drive through Indy’s newest district you’ll notice it’s a maze of construction projects! As Cummins and 360 Market Square break ground to invest more than $130M of new infrastructure, our own Downtown Transit Center project continues to make progress.
The steel frame for the mostly glass transit center has been completed as well as the ground electrical and plumbing. Construction crews will now start working on the facility’s lower floor structure while the first work begins on the 17 off-street bus stops on the property. These bus stops will be covered by canopies to protect passengers from the elements and feature real-time arrival information signage increasing the predictability and reliability of our system.
