The sixth shelter for the project was installed at Petticoat & Main last night. The first five were all at 12th & Grand. The next will probably be 12th & Main or 12th & Troost, with installation all along the corridor starting in July.

Probably when Town Pavillion stops owning the parking garage it connects to.

No.

It will be reconstructed -- the platform is already done, sorry no level boarding -- on the original footprint. Temporary boarding is a half block east under the honkey tube.

There's something behind the shelter (bike lane) that would normally be in the street. Most "floating" bus stops actually move the stop out further into the street, which didn't happen here or at 12th. Since there's no on-street parking here it didn't make sense to truly float the stop if the bike lane moved to the sidewalk.
