Greater Cleveland transit agency opens Buckeye-Woodhill Station


Yesterday, the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (GCRTA) officially opened the redesigned Buckeye-Woodhill Station serving the Blue and Green rail lines.

Construction on the $3.3 million project began in June 2011. The new modern design features transparent fiberglass panels covering the eastbound and westbound platforms, a series of stairs and ramps to serve riders with disabilities, platform access from both Buckeye and Woodhill roads, and 33 free parking spots, GCRTA officials said in a prepared statement.

"This updated station has an attractive, high-quality design that is passenger friendly and will make the Buckeye-Woodhill Rapid Transit Station universally accessible," said GCRTA Chief Executive Officer and General Manager Joe Calabrese.

The project was funded with federal stimulus dollars.
