Public Transit Service Returns to North Broadway Monday
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - Rochester Public Transit will end detours on four different routes and return to normal operations on North Broadway Ave starting Monday.
According to a news release from the City of Rochester, Rochester Public Transit will end detours on Routes 101, 102, 505, and 21 and return to normal operations on North Broadway Ave following the end of major roadway construction activity.
The routes on North Broadway Ave. will continue to follow the current schedule, but bus stop locations have been adjusted to help the routes perform better. New stop locations are at 13th Street, 10th Street, and 7th Street. At 5th Street, a new northbound stop is in place. A southbound stop will not open until the completion of the Bryk on Broadway project next year.
The new North Broadway design includes several features to improve the transit performance and the rider experience. Buses will no longer need to pull out of the traffic lane, which will allow for faster boarding and exiting. Improved sidewalk facilities will make accessing stops easier - especially for persons with disabilities. Shelters have been installed in all but the 5th Street stop locations.
