“Looks like the first bus island is being built on 14th Street as part of the Streetscape project. This is at 14th and N. They’re apparently going to stretch all the way up to Florida. It explains why they’ve been tearing down shelters up and down 14th. They will be move to the islands once they’re built.” (more…)
