Wedding a rail station and transit center

Situated between North Central Expressway and Greenville Avenue, across the street from a bus transit center, this station site presented a notable challenge. The solution was an inventive pedestrian tunnel connecting the two facilities. Skylights over the avenue's median allow natural light to filter into the tunnel, and elsewhere multi-colored night lighting adds to the drama. Station canopy and transit center roof colors match, maintaining design unity.

A walkway captures Richardson's history with icons such as cotton plants. Station columns feature limestone on the bottom, concrete in the middle and bright synthetic material on top, reflecting the city's past, present and future.

Hans Van Bovenkamp's large sculpture, Gateway, a three-dimensional red ring, symbolizes a bright window to the future.

Design Artist: Benito Huerta
