Route 97 Cornelius Village Rider    

Major Detour for Catawba Avenue at Interstate 77

Beginning Saturday, June 28, through Sunday, June 29, Catawba Avenue will be closed to through traffic between Statesville Road and Liverpool Parkway, including the bridge over Interstate 77.  This closure is due to the construction work by North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) for the conversion of Exit 28 into a double crossover interchange.

As a result of this closure, Route 97 will be on detour between Westmoreland Road and Statesville Road.  All bus stops on Catawba Avenue north of Westmoreland Road and west of Interstate 77 will not be served by regular fixed-route service during the weekend road closure.  Customers using these temporarily closed stops are encouraged to call 704-336-RIDE (7433) in advance of this weekend to arrange deviated service.  When calling, customers are reminded to arrange both their deviated pick-up, as well as their return trip, or deviated drop-off.  Customers boarding at a regular stop still served during the weekend closure may request a deviated drop-off from the driver, in order to be dropped off near a closed stop.
