New Bus Shelters Under Construction

New Bus Stops in Boulder City, NVHave you seen the chain link fence that makes little “mini roadside construction sites” around town of late? They’re for the new bus stop shelters that are being constructed as part of a Federal Grant funded through the Nevada Department of Transportation. And they’re cool lookin’, too (the shelters, not the fences!)

There are three different styles of bus stop shelters being built and my peeps at Public Works graciously sent over photos for me to share with ya’ll! Here goes:

First…there is one on Arizona St. (near City Hall) and one on Nevada Way (near Crowe Park) that will have Spanish tile roofs and a smooth stucco finish, arched openings, and brick accents so that their designs coordinate with City Hall and the Police Station.

They’ll also have photovoltaic panels to collect and store power that will be used for the canopy lighting. Below is the first artistic rendering:

Next – there is a shelter being built at Bank of America and four more on Nevada Highway/US 93 (two near Gingerwood St., one near the Rebel Station and one near Marshall Plaza). I don’t know which ones will have which of the remaining two designs, but here they are for you:

One of the designs is a concrete and steel structure inspired by Hoover Dam…it also has photovoltaic panels to collect and store power that will be used for canopy lighting…see below:

And the second design is inspired by the Mike O’Callaghan/Pat Tillman Bridge when it was still under construction and the two sides hadn’t yet come together. The concrete columns support the tension cables that support the steel canopy. Again…photovoltaic panels for the canopy lighting and below is a rendering for ya!
