LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Big changes are happening in Louisville’s Russell neighborhood, and now the latest piece of functional art has been installed.

The latest Smart Stop sits at the corner of 12th and Jefferson Streets in front of St. Peter’s United Church of Christ, and its design features a stained glass look that mirrors the building that it sits in front of.

It's one of five artistic bus shelters in the Russell neighborhood, providing a beautiful place for TARC riders to wait.

The smart stop was built by Youthbuild Lousiville, in cooperation with Fresh Start Growers, and Luckett & Farley, and the design mirrors the church that it stands in front of. It was funded by a HUD Action grant, which is also funding four other SmART stops, the redevelopment of two vacant lots, improvements at Sheppard Park and gateway murals along the railway between 12th and 14th Streets.
