(DETROIT, MI) – Beginning today, the Detroit Transportation Corporation will close the Detroit People Mover’s Grand Circus Park station as part of a second phase of renovations. The closure is scheduled through to April 3.
Now focusing on improvements to the exterior of the station, the emergency stairwell will be demolished and reconstructed. Additionally, replacement of the platform roof and painting will also take place during this time.
People Mover trains will bypass Grand Circus Park station.
Patrons traveling within the west/Foxtown portion of the Central Business District have the option of using the two nearest People Mover stations, Times Square or Broadway, during construction.
Times Square is closest to the Rosa Parks Transit Center. Broadway Station is closest to the Fox Theatre, Comerica Park, and Ford Field, and also is steps away from the Detroit Opera House. Elevator and escalator accessibility is available at both stations.
Grand Circus Park’s emergency stairwell was original while the main station adjacent to the Aloft Hotel and the David Whitney Building was new construction and reopened in 2015. The renovation project is grant-funded.
Detroit People Mover was constructed in 1987 as part of a planned, regional transportation system. Fare is 75 cents per ride.
Any combination of US nickels, dimes, and quarters or one DPM token may be used for entry. Tokens are available in all DPM stations. Children ages five and under ride free.
The DPM system is accessible to elderly and disabled persons.
