44U & 49U begin service on Tuesday, September 2, 2014
Effective Wednesday, April 23, 2014, due to construction on 76th Street between Kearny Street and National Avenue, several Route 44 and 44U stops will be temporarily discontinued. The following stops will not be served during this time:
70th and Kearny Streets
76th and Kearny Streets
76th Street and Greenfield Avenue
84th Street and Greenfield Avenue
Effective Monday, April 14, 2014, Routes 44 and 44U westbound ONLY will detour due to the closure of the 76th Street bridge over I-94 in conjunction with the Zoo Interchange Project. Detour routing is as follows:
From westbound I-94:
Exit at 68th Street, west on O’Connor Street to 70th Street, south on 70th Street to Main Street, west to 76th Street to regular route.
During this time westbound Routes 44 and 44U will miss two stops. One stop at 73rd and O’Connor Streets and one stop at 76th and O’Connor Streets. Passengers can use alternate stops at 69th and O’Connor Streets or at 70th and Main Streets.
Effective Monday, November 4th, 2013, (note this effective date may change if the ramp closures date changes - check back for updates) work in conjunction with the I-794 Lake Freeway / Hoan Bridge Project will affect several Freeway Flyers, however no bus stops will be affected. The I-794 East exit to Lincoln Memorial Drive will close as well as the Lincoln Memorial Drive southbound entrance ramp to I-794 East (Southbound) until further notice. Routes 40, 43, 44U, 46 and 48 will most likely experience delays. Additionally, Routes 44U and 48 will use detour routing during this time, however no bus stops will be affected.
We appreciate your patience during this time and we will monitor buses throughout this project and update passengers with any new information as it becomes available.
Effective Tuesday, September 3, 2013 the regular bus stop at State Fair park-ride lot will be removed due to construction. During this time, please board buses near the southwest corner of 76th Street and Main/Adler Street (near southeast corner of the lot).
