Lexington bus stop to be made from soda bottles

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- A Kentucky-made soft drink is the theme of environmentally-friendly bus stop design in Lexington that designers are calling "Bottlestop."

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports that the city's first art bus shelter will be made out of recycled Ale 8 One soda bottles. The drink, pronounced "A Late One" is made in Winchester.

The stop will sit in front of the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government's Versailles Road campus.

Designers say it's meant to be eye-catching and environmentally friendly. Jim McKay and Aaron Scales of McKay Snyder Architects of Lexington won a nationwide design contest with their design for the art shelter.

It's expected to be completed in a couple months.
