Grossmont Transit Center to open after renovations

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The Grossmont Transit Center will open to the public Saturday for the first time since a $7.9 million makeover was completed, in part to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The remodeled station got new elevators, a pedestrian bridge and a plaza.

"The station is not only more attractive, it also now complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act," MTS spokesperson Rob Schupp said. "Before the improvements were made, the only direct access to major retail, commercial and medical facilities was a steep wooden stairway."

This project is one of the first federal stimulus-funded transportation projects to be completed in San Diego County, Schupp said.

La Mesa Mayor Art Madrid, SANDAG First Vice Chair and Santee Councilman Jack Dale and MTS board member Ernest Ewin will be at this morning's 11 a.m. ribbon-cutting.
