Summary: The GoRaleigh Station renovation project celebrated completion with a ribbon cutting event on May 23, 2017.  The Moore Square Transit Station had been in operation since 1988 with constrained bus operating capabilities due to an unfortunately dated facility.  The renovation has transformed the transit facility in downtown Raleigh with functional improvements and the creation of a modern, inviting, and attractive public space.   WSP USA Inc. served as the prime designer and performed construction administration for the City of Raleigh.  This presentation will address the design team’s approach, discuss the project’s challenges, and provide an overview of construction and the new operating capabilities of the renovated transit station.

Morven MacLean, LLB is a project manager with the Transit and Rail Technical Center of WSP.  Her experience lies with the planning and delivery of large capital rail and transit projects.  Morven is a native of Scotland with a degree in undergraduate Scottish Law.
