AFFECTED AREA: 27th Street between Lisbon Avenue and Highland Avenue
Effective Wednesday, July 20th, both northbound and southbound stops at
Galena Street and McKinley Avenue will be temporarily discontinued during the 27th Street Reconstruction Project. Even though buses will continue to use 27th Street in both directions during this project, these stops are being temporarily discontinued due to pedestrian safety and accessibility concerns during construction.
Operators are instructed to board and alight passengers for Route 27 at stops either north or south of the discontinued stops until the project is complete.
