Structural Issue on Washington St. Bridge Leads to Long-Term Reroutes | 5 Green & 70 Grey Evening, Saturday, Sunday
MTD was notified by the Urbana Public Works Department that there are structural issues with the bridge structure located on East Washington St., just west of Sunny Lane in Urbana. Due to weight limit restrictions preventing buses from traveling on Washington between Scottswood and MacArthur, MTD’s 5E/W Green and 70 E/W Grey Evening, Saturday, and Sunday routes are rerouted. The length of these reroutes is unknown.
The 5E/W Green will operate in a clockwise direction before Noon, and a counter-clockwise direction after Noon, along a path listed below. During this reroute, passengers may board both the 5E Green and 5W Green at stops on the west side of MacArthur and Brady. Stops on the east side of these streets will not be served. Along Scottswood, passengers may board and alight at any safe intersection. Please be sure to signal your Operator!
The 70 E/W Grey Evening, Saturday, and Sunday routes will not serve stops at Washington & MacArthur, MacArthur & California, or High & Brady. During these reroutes, passengers may board and alight at any safe intersection along Scottswood. Please be sure to signal your Operator!
