I wondered how they were gonna do that intersection with the gas lines right there. I guess we know now. LOL.

Everything can be moved.  It's just how much money they want to spend dealing with it!

Thats very true. I wonder what cane first though, the pipes or the riverfront?!

Based on where they're located in that pic, they were probably moved to that location during a previous construction project.

They are constantly moving things around in that Waterfront area. I was there back in the mid-90's when Kanunaville was the big - and really only - player in that area.  I think it was easier to get around then because the road basically led you there, unlike today where it seems anything involves 3 or 4 turns at lights that will never be synced properly!

Image 2 is the new bus depot for Dart, by the train station.

Looking at GSV, as recently as June 2018, the bus depot site (Walnut [US Bus. 13 NB] and Front Sts.) was home to Hertz, Avis, Budget, and Enterprise used car lots.  Where did they move to?

Also this will be an intercity bus depot, right?  Or will DART have a major presence as well?

You know thats a good question, I have no idea where those businesses moved.

It will be the official Dart bus station & maybe even the bolt bus & Chinese bus stop as well.

I wish they would have built a connector bridge to the train station, to add connectivity.

They moved the rental cars to a surface lot that had been used for paid parking.  It has made parking at the station much more difficult (I had to park on the street to catch a train to a meeting and have a co-worker move my car into our office garage because all the garages were full).

They have like 3 parking garages in front of the train station dont they? They were all full!?? Thats crazy that definitely means itís time for some skyscrapers & underground parking.

One is quite small, and another is only open to monthly parkers.

Creativity behind DelDOT VMS's has become news fodder for a Salisbury TV station (and its sister serving the Delaware beaches).

I used to work with Scott in my old job!  He's a really good guy.  I suggested one and apparently it was put on a VMS somewhere, but I never saw it.
