You will find update photos below that were taken over the past several weeks. The week of October 17, a new temporary tent structure started going up at the CityLink facilities on NE Jefferson. This is acting as additional storage space for buses & other vehicles while the new building is under construction. This will be especially helpful in the winter months so the buses don’t have to stay outside in poor weather conditions. The tent will be fully complete once the larger doors have been received and installed; however it is already being used by CityLink for storage. A new time-lapse that was taken between September 12, 2022 and and October 17, 2022 is also available below.
