The Herron station of the East Busway, the stop that serves Polish Hill, is among those that will be closed this weekend for construction work on the S. Highland Avenue Bridge and East Liberty Transit Center projects, as well as repairs to the busway’s Neville Ramp.
The closure will begin Saturday, April 13 at midnight and is expected to end early Monday morning before start of service. The P1 East Busway-All Stops bus route will be detoured from Downtown through East Liberty during this time.
The P1 will not serve Penn, Herron, Negley and East Liberty stations during the closure, and will instead use Bigelow Boulevard, Baum Boulevard and Penn Avenue between Downtown and the busway ramp at Port Authority’s East Liberty bus garage. Temporary stops will be located on local streets near the stations: Bigelow at Herron, Baum at Roup/Negley and Penn near the East Liberty Target. Additionally, the P1’s Downtown stops will change slightly during the detour.
P1 riders should allow for extra travel time during the detour. For complete detour information, visit portauthority.org or call Customer Service at 412-442-2000 or for TTY, 412-231-7007.
