Latest Transportation Alerts:
RTA Quarterly Service Changes and West Side Red Line Alert
As of April 21, 2013, several bus routes that service University Circle have been adjusted. Please visit the RTA website for more information on these changes. West Side Red Line riders, please note that the S-Curve project also began on April 21 and may impact your trip timing. The project is expected to last until June 7, 2013 and buses will serve riders between the West 117th Street Rapid Station and West Blvd./Cudell Rapid Station during this time. The Airport Tunnel Project is also ongoing and is expected to be complete in late-spring 2013.
Cedar Avenue Reconstruction Project & Shuttle Route Changes
Construction on Phase 2 of the Cedar Avenue Reconstruction Project – from East 89th Street to Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive – began on January 29, 2013. One-way, east-bound, traffic will be maintained in this area for the duration of the project. The 1.3 mile rehabilitation project will include full-width reconstruction, a new 12 inch water line, new curbs, sidewalks and driveways, replacement of existing catch basins, and ADA compliant ramps at all non-compliant locations. Due to the change in traffic patterns, the UCRC bus route will only be able to service the south side of Cedar Avenue. This impacts several buildings and lots along Cedar, between MLK and E. 105th Street. If your location is on the north side of the street, please cross Cedar at the nearest crosswalk to find your stop. Contact Martin Reese, Project Manager, at 216.664.2971 with any questions or concerns about the roadway project.
MLK, Jr. Drive / E. 105th Street Reconstruction
Mt. Sinai Drive, west East 105th Street, has been closed, starting Tuesday, January 29, 2013. This closure is expected to last until May 2013. During this time, there will be no access to Mt. Sinai Drive off of East 105th Street. All access to Mt. Sinai Drive will be via East 101st Street/Ansel Road. Please follow posted detour routes as necessary. E. 105th Street will continue to be limited to one lane in each direction between Park Lane and Mt. Sinai Drive. Two-way traffic on MLK, Jr. Drive will also be maintained during this stage.
Cedar - University Rapid Station
RTA broke ground Sept. 19, 2012, on the reconstruction of the Cedar - University Red Line Rapid Station. The station and bus terminal remain open during construction, with periodic detours. Beginning Monday, November 5th, the station's north side entrance and bus lane closed. Customers now use the station's south side Red Line entrance and "bus loop," as both will remain open. ADA customers are encouraged to use the Red Line Stations at E. 105/Quincy, Superior or Stokes/Windermere, or ride the HealthLine in the interim. This closure will impact the Red Line and RTA buses #7, #32, #48, and #58, as well as the local Circle Link and UCRC shuttles.
Circle Link riders should walk east from the station's south entrance to Ambleside Drive, where they can cross Cedar Avenue to the nearest Circle Link stop on Murray Hill and Glenwood Avenue. Riders with destinations on Adelbert Road may choose to utilize either the UCRC route or newly added Cedar Rapid Express (CRE) during this time. UCRC and CRE riders will be able to board their shuttle inside the RTA south side bus loop. Please note that pedestrians who need to cross Cedar or Carnegie should use the marked crosswalks at Ambleside Drive (east of the station) and MLK (west of the station). For more information on these changes, please contact Standard Parking at 216-791-6226.
Vehicular traffic changes on Cedar Avenue are ongoing - Eastbound (uphill) traffic is limited to two (2) lanes and westbound (downhill) traffic has three (3) lanes. The Cedar Avenue west "loop" is closed to all traffic (except buses).
RTA Red Line Tunnel Construction
If you are taking the RTA Red Line to Hopkins International Airport this holiday season, please allow extra time. RTA is making $10 million of improvements to Red Line tunnel under the Airport, and the tunnel will be closed from Nov. 27 until late spring 2013.
During the shutdown, RTA will operate bus service from the Brookpark Rapid Station to the limousine staging area, near the Airport terminal. Look for buses with destination signs that read "Red Line." Bus service is coordinated with the rail schedule, and will operate every 15-20 minutes. RTA is working to restore and improve the tunnel's drainage, track, structure, ventilation and safety systems.
