This interactive map was designed to clearly display the location changes and stop improvements as recommended by the Lee Highway and Washington Boulevard Bus Stop Consolidation and Accessibility Improvements Project.
Through this map you can locate and learn about the Washington Boulevard bus stop changes and improvements planned in your neighborhood.
Understanding the Map Icons:
- Yellow Bus — Existing stop to be relocated
- Green Bus — New location of relocated stop
- Blue Bus — No location change
- Red X — Existing stop to be removed
Identifying Improvements and Changes:
- Zoom in and out using the cursor, double clicking on the map, or using the plus and minus symbols shown on the bottom left hand corner of the map.
- Use the legend to select stops, or click directly on individual icons to see planned improvements and changes.
Using the Map Legend:
- Change which bus stops and routes appear on the map by clicking the check boxes on the legend (located on the left side of the screen).
- After clicking on a stop and loading the stop information, return the legend to its original state by clicking on the left facing arrow on the top left corner of the legend.
Definition of Terms Used in the Map:
- Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance: A bus boarding area must have dimensions of 5 feet by 8 feet (5×8), with a clear and level surface, to be considered compliant with ADA standards. The most frequent ADA upgrade in this project is expanding the sidewalk at the boarding area to a 5×8 foot area, although other ADA upgrades include: clearing the boarding area, replacing cracked or damaged sidewalks, or leveling the boarding/exiting area. In the interactive map, the boarding/exiting area is commonly referred to as a landing pad.
- Removal: Several stops are planned for removal due to their close proximity to other stops, low ridership, or due to safety concerns with their location. Removing stops will help to increase the efficiency of bus service and in some cases improve pedestrian and traffic safety.
- Relocation: Several stops are planned for relocation to improve bus stop spacing, due to safety issues, and to create opportunities to upgrade stops to bring all bus stops into ADA compliance. Most relocations involve moving bus stops less than 200 feet away (i.e. less than a block) from their current locations.
- Replace: Many amenities (mostly trash cans but also benches and shelters) will be replaced as part of this project. A replacement indicates that the old amenity will be removed and a new amenity of the same type will be added.
