1/24/2017 through 2/17/2017 - Route 1, Route 3, Route 4, Route 6, Route 7, Route 10, and the Free Trolley - Due to night utility work, these routes will all experience a detour around portions of Market Street and the 2nd Street SW Mall Crossing from 9 PM until the end of service Monday through Friday. During the detours, the routes will not serve the following bus stops: West Market Street @ Old Preston Avenue (#11494), East Market Street @ 2nd Street NE (#11299), East Market Street @ 5th Street NE (#11309), and the 2nd Street SW @ the Mall Crossing (#17305). Passengers who frequent these locations should board and/or disembark the routes at designated CAT bus stops on Water Street and Ridge McIntire Road.
1/27/2017 through July - Route 5 - Due to construction on Berkmar Drive, Route 5 is unable to serve the Sam's Club bus stop (#13283). We anticipate this detour to continue into July. Passengers wishing to use the route should instead use the Walmart bus stop (#13296).
2/13/2017 - 2/28/2017 - Route 3 - Construction on Rives Street will prevent Route 3 from serving the Rives Park bus stop (#19158). Passengers may use a temporary bus stop installed near the Rives Street and Florence Rd intersection. Passengers may also use the Monticello Road at Linden Avenue bus stop (across from the BP Station). The detour is expected to last from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday, until February 28.
2/13/2017 - 3/4/2017 - Free Trolley - Construction on Alderman Road will prevent the Free Trolley from serving the Stadium Road (#10687) and Aquatic & Fitness Center (#11234) bus stops. Instead of traveling up Alderman Road, the route will turn left off of Maury Avenue onto Stadium Road, right onto Hereford Drive, and straight onto McCormick Road. During the detour, UTS bus stops along Hereford Drive will be served. The detour is expected to last into early March.
