CONSTRUCTION HAS BEGUN
Construction activities for the GRTC Pulse (Bus Rapid Transit) Project began August 16 with utility relocation work between Thompson and Laurel Streets. The Pulse Design-Build (DB) Contractor, LANE Construction, has workers in the field along the south side of Broad Street in the permitted work area.
Up-to-date construction information is available on GRTC's official page.
During construction, the public will continue to have access to businesses, organizations and services located along the Project route.

The work crew schedules are weather and progress-dependent. It is important to note that field conditions can change rapidly and LANE's goal is to work safely and swiftly to minimize impacts to the areas where they work.
Depending on the proximity to a work zone, area residents could hear portions of work. Any bus stops impacted by the work zone will be temporarily closed. Pedestrian pathway detours and street lane closure signs are posted accordingly. Please follow construction signage and be aware of construction workers and vehicles within the work zone(s). Pedestrians are advised to follow work zone signage in the sidewalk area.
During construction, the public will continue to have access to businesses, organizations and services located along the Project route. Specific details for this work are provided at least 48 hours in advance, including posting any required “No Parking” signage or issuing traffic advisories.
The project team expects major construction work will progress within these approximate timeframes. Work is weather and progress-dependent.
