The Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority will be making improvements to six bus stops in Santa Clara County, including in Palo Alto. Each project will last about 10 days, according to VTA, and will occur on a rotating schedule between March 14 and April 10.

During the construction, concrete will be demolished and new concrete will be poured in the street for a new bus pad and/or for a new sidewalk and passenger pad.

Bus riders should use the temporary bus stop nearby, according to VTA. There may also be lane closures that will affect drivers, the VTA warned.
