As construction on the $60 million Quarter project
at the corner of Detroit Avenue and W. 25th Street continues apace, some enterprising public transit users have set up an impromptu bus stop.
Currently featuring two plastic chairs, one of which is backless, and a plastic milk crate, the makeshift transit stop rests just outside the Quarter's construction fence and is peopled by west-bound commuters on the RTA's #26 route throughout the day.
Snavely Group, the Quarter's development company, estimated
that the project would be completed this month. That would be ambitious, but a Snavely rep, speaking by phone, was unaware of an updated timeline.
