GLASS ELEVATORS OPEN AT LA MESA TROLLEY STATION, GIVING COMMUTERS EASY ACCESS TO SHOPPING AND HOSPITAL


November 23, 2011 (La Mesa) – Mayor Art Madrid cut the ribbon this week at the grand opening of twin glass elevators rising from the Grossmont Trolley Station to the street above. Before, commuters and apartment dwellers along the transit line had to climb a steep flight of 77 stairs to access Grossmont Shopping Center or Grossmont Hospital above, an impossible feat for those in wheelchairs.
