Zyp cyclists on UAB’s campus may have noticed some excitement lately near the station on the 10th Avenue side of the Green. Although the road construction is ongoing, the Zyp BikeShare station is safely outside of the construction zone and is open for use.
Construction on the south side of the UAB Green will see a portion of 10th Avenue South between 13th and 16th Streets South closed to traffic through December 2018. UAB reports that the closure is part of a project to expand the District Steam and Chilled Water System across UAB’s campus, as well as spruce up the streetscape.
So steer clear of the actual construction, Zypsters, but feel free to check out your favorite green bikes from the station on the Green!
TODAY IS THE DAY! REV Birmingham is celebrating 10 years of creating vibrant commercial districts in the City of Birmingham. Today is all about celebrating the past decade of success and all that we have accomplished. It all started ten years ago when two organizations – Operation New Birmingham and Main Street Birmingham – merged to create the one and only REV Birmingham. We have covered so much ground since then, from historic building rehab consulting all the way to our refresh of 20th Street North – and we are looking forward to seeing what the future holds for us here at REV.
REV is turning TEN! Our birthday is swiftly approaching (it’s on November 15th in case you want to give us a happy birthday shoutout!) and we are spending the week leading up to it reflecting on the past 10 years. We have accomplished so much in just a decade, and we can’t wait to see what the next 10 years have in store for us. But for now, let’s take a trip down memory lane and look back at some of our favorite projects.
From Austin, Texas to New Orleans, Louisiana, learn why this family choose to move into the city center of Birmingham. We are interviewing people from all around the city and learning why they chose to move into Birmingham.
