Cleveland RTA to open rehabbed Brookpark Station
[Editor's note: This post was updated on Aug. 24.]
The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) today will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony for its newly renovated Brookpark Station.
Served by the Red Line rail route and four bus routes, the station underwent a $16.5 million renovation project. The work included building a new platform, canopies and entrances, as well as improving lighting, security systems and cameras.
In addition, RTA provided new parking lots and enhanced passenger waiting areas, agency officials said in a media advisory.
Work began on the improvements in June 2015. The station was first constructed in 1969.
The Brookpark station is RTA's busiest and serves more than 750,000 riders each year.
