• North Hanley Parking Lot Replacement/Bus Loop Improvements – construction of additional bus capacity and passenger amenities at this key park and ride and bus/rail transfer location in order to help meet customer demand.
• Track improvement throughout the MetroLink light rail system, including replacement of rail and ties as well as installation of a switch track interlock at the University of Missouri station.
