The demolition of the old Greyhound bus station in Downtown Fresno has been delayed until later this month, according to Toni Tinoco, information officer for the California High-Speed Rail Authority.
Tinoco said the delay occurred because the California High-Speed Rail Authority’s Construction Package 1 (CP1) contractor, Tutor-Perini/Zachry/Parsons, wanted to review and make “final adjustments to their stabilization plan before proceeding with demolition activities.”
CP1 is the first 32-mile stretch of high-speed rail line to be built and will run between Avenue 19 in Madera County to E. American Avenue in Fresno County.
The old bus station, located at 1033 H St., was built in the 1950s and is being torn down to make way for construction of Fresno’s new bullet train terminal. The building had been scheduled for demolition in late August.
Construction schedules for the bullet train project, Tinoco added, are subject to further change based on “approval of traffic management plans, utility relocations and any other changes that are made.”
The new Greyhound station was relocated last year about a half mile east to the historic Santa Fe Depot at 2660 Tulare St.
