близко or близка?

In the sentence "Автобусная остановка уже близко?", why is the neuter ending used rather than the feminine близка?

The word "близко" in this sentence is an adverb and not a short form of the adjective "близкий." Thus, the adverb ending doesn't change.

близка is an adjective, близко is an adverb.
