Transit hub to get a makeover

Updated on July 22nd at 3:50pm

Metro plans to reconstruct the 25-year-old Rosa Parks Station at an estimated cost of $65 million. As one of the county’s busiest transit hubs, the station serves two light-rail lines and various Metro and municipal bus lines. Planners envision an attractive link to the community and recently reopened Martin Luther King Jr. medical complex.
