Construction of TARPS Facility
Construction crews are making an impact at the site of TARTA’s new paratransit facility adjacent to the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Plaza. In just a few weeks crews have removed trees and debris, excavated for a foundation, and brought in building equipment. When complete in 2011, the $9 million building will house offices and maintenance facilities for TARTA’s paratransit operations. The building will incorporate a geothermal heating and cooling system, solar panels, skylights, reflective roofing, and earth sheltering for energy efficiency. Future plans call for a biodiesel fueling station for public vehicles.
