If you ride the Sun Metro bus, listen up.

Renovations on Five Points Transit Terminal and birch street will begin next week.

Due to the construction, Sun Metro will have to detour nine routes and temporarily close the Five Points Transit Terminal beginning July 7 through early 2014.

An alternate boarding location will be located about a block away from the terminal along Tularosa and Raynor.

The renovations, which are expected to be completed by early 2014, will help prepare the terminal's bus bays for the 60-foot articulated vehicles to be used for Sun Metro Brio Rapid Transit System.

The terminal also will get an updated look to include covering exterior walls with cultured stone and stucco; the replacement of restroom fixtures and partitions; the replacement of all benches; landscaping; and the addition of modern amenities such as free Wi-Fi, TV monitors, electronic real-time arrival signs, security cameras, ticket vending machines, an ATM machine, and space for a concession vendor.

Several routes will be detoured.

Routes 30, 33 and 55 outbound/eastbound trips will board along Raynor between Tularosa and Montana.

Routes 32, 35, 41 and 50 outbound/eastbound trips will board along Tularosa, just east of Raynor.
