Downtown express commuters and HART customers who board the bus along Marion Transit Parkway should be advised of a temporary detour that avoids the area of Marion Transit Parkway and Morgan Street at the Polk Railroad Crossing, which will be restricted due to work by CSX. This restriction will go into effect at any time starting today or within the next few days, and is expected to last about 3 - 4 weeks. The bus detour will begin when the restriction for this area begins.
The detour will mean buses will instead use the following streets:
- Buses headed southbound will follow their regular routes on Morgan Street, left on Cass Street, right on Pierce Street, right on Twiggs Street, left on Marion Transit Parkway and continue on their regular routes.
- Buses headed northbound will follow their regular routes on Marion Transit Parkway, left on Zack Street, right on Florida Avenue, right on Cass Street, left on Marion Transit Parkway and continue on their regular routes.
- The following bus stops will not be served: Cass Street Station and Federal Station. Riders that normally use Cass Street Station should use the temporary "flag" stop on Morgan between Tyler and Cass. Riders that normally use Federal Station should use the stop at Zack and Florida stop.
