NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - A new downtown bus station in Norfolk is scheduled to open soon.

The Virginian-Pilot reports (https://bit.ly/1JovOZb ) the Downtown Norfolk Transit Center will open to the public Jan. 17 after more than four years in the making. Once operating, the city expects an average of 5,000 to 6,000 daily bus patrons.

The new station will feature a climate-controlled indoor waiting area, as well as public restrooms, indoor and outdoor benches, bike racks and security cameras.

Paul Filion, a transportation construction project manager for the city, told the City Council at a Dec. 15 meeting that they’re under budget as the project wraps up. The budget for the project is $6.7 million.
