Renovations include new flooring, tiled walls, new lavatories, countertops, new air hand driers, fixtures with motion-operated automatic flush valves, toilet partitions and LED lighting.

Also included will be the installation of motion detectors for lighting, painting, baby changing tables, water fountains with bottle fillers and new door hardware.

Temporary restroom facilities will be available for visitors while these restrooms are under construction.
