NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Bus riders can expect to see a lot of construction work around the Music City Central station soon.

There will be new bathrooms, directions and lighting at the facility.

It’s expected to cost $6 million and part of this year’s budget.

The facility is expected to be up and running at full capacity by the winter of 2019.

“The overall goal is to enhance our customer experience moving forward, so we’ll have better lighting, brighter colors and then new signage to direct our customers around the facility,” said Trey Walker, Director of Engineering.

The demolition of the bathrooms is expected to begin at the start of summer.

Officials said because of the building’s age and use, it’s time for a bit of a facelift.

“These improvements are just because the facility is 10 years old now. About 17,000 people go through every day, which is about the size of a Preds game at Bridgestone, so it’s a lot of wear-and-tear on the facility,” said Metro Transit Authority spokesperson Amanda Clelland.

Eventually, some bus bays may have to be closed.

MTA will be posting ways to get around those changes on posters and on its social media accounts.
