Forrest Home Drive Bridge construction date moved

Due to the weather forecast for rain, the start date for the Forrest Home Drive bridge construction project has been moved to Thursday, Oct. 29. The project will prompt a major detour impacting Routes 31, 37,41, 81, 83 (all weekday-only routes) through Friday October 30. Work may continue into Saturday, Oct. 31, so all the above routes should be back to normal by Monday. On Thursday and Friday, bus stops at Garden Ave. @ Tower Rd. and Campus Rd. @ East Ave. will remain open. However, for both those days, TCAT will be unable to serve Routes 31,37,41, 81, 83 passengers at Tower Road stops anywhere east of Garden Ave. @ Tower Rd. Passengers using those stops should use Route 82 to transfer to Uris Hall Across the Street and Uris Hall bus stops. In addition, for Routes 31, 37, 41 and 83 ONLY, the Statler Hall stop will be moved to Uris Across the Street and the Sage Hall stop will be relocated to Uris Hall. TCAT, Inc.
