The DTA is announcing some changes and detours on some routes throughout the city as several road construction projects get underway.
The changes include the addition and removal of stops and shelters along the Lincoln Park Craft District stretch of West Superior Street, some of the stops will be relocated as floating islands. The DTA is busy upgrading and replacing shelters in the area and should be done by June.
Starting on Monday, April 26th service will be halted on East 2nd Street from 3rd Avenue East to 6th Avenue East, the outbound downtown routes will run as normal from 3rd Avenue East and 2nd Street, buses will then detour along 3rd Avenue East to 4th Street, turn right, run to 4th Street and 6th Avenue East and continue on to its regular route. Inbound routes will remain the same and bus stops will be placed along the detour. This detour will last into the fall.
