Project Description


STRADA worked with a local municipality, in cooperation with our client, to update its inner-city public transit system by development a bus rapid transit (BRT) corridor that will connect 25 neighborhoods within the area. Implementation of the BRT will require the construction of 36 stations along the corridor, all compact and open-air structures incorporating architectural elements from the city’s diverse built environment. Because the project received federal funding, STRADA was responsible for seeing that all necessary documents were prepared for compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).

The project corridor is located in Jefferson County within the Birmingham, Alabama city limits. The corridor is approximately 10 miles in length. The proposed corridor begins in the eastern section of Birmingham at the proposed Woodlawn Community Transit Center located along 1st Avenue North between 56th and 57th Streets and extends west from the Birmingham City Business District center, terminating at the CrossPlex Facility in the proposed Five Points West Community Transit Center.

The project has received federal funding, which requires compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). STRADA is responsible for the completion of this task.
