Check Out The Progress Of Bangor’s New Transportation Station
Things are moving right along with the construction of Bangor's new Transportation Station down by Pickering Square.
According to the City of Bangor website, the City voted to construct the new Transportation Station back in December of 2020, and began construction work at the site in the summer of 2021.
"The new facility will incorporate ADA accessible elements that will enhance the usability and mobility to all users. The proposed amenities will include heat and air conditioning, an enclosed waiting area, outside shelters and interactive schedule information kiosks, public restrooms and bus operators' break room and private restroom."
In March of this year, after the groundwork was laid for the new building, posts and beams went up in Pickering Square.
Many of the roads, which have been blocked off for months so that the big equipment and materials could move in and out of the area, are opened once again.
The progress of the project has been documented on the City's website, with the latest updates appearing to be very promising.
"Exterior siding is almost complete, with remaining portion on the roof by the mechanical room. C&C Lynch began placing material on the adjacent area toward the pocket park between Haley Ward and the Parking garage for future Greenspan."
They have some pictures up on that website, and also on the Bangor, Maine Historic Queen City On The Move Facebook Page, which posted the most recent look at how things are shaping up.
The Transportation Station has a price tag of $3.45 million dollars, which is being provided through grants, the City, and the Community Connector. The project is tentatively slated to be complete by this coming December.
