The scheduled dates for traction power upgrades have been changed to Saturday, October 10 and 17.

Updated August 7, 2020

On Saturday, September 19 and 26, the Van Dorn St. bus loop will be temporarily closed due to traction power system upgrades. Buses will be relocated to the Kiss & Ride lot. In addition, the taxi stand, customer drop-off/pick up area, and motorcycle parking will relocate to the inner loop near the short-term parking area.

Metro’s contractor will be working on the traction power substation, located below the station and tracks. This requires the closure of the bus loop to allow the contractor to bring in large cranes and heavy equipment necessary to perform the work.

Parking will be restricted in the outer loop of the Kiss & Ride for the entire day beginning at 12:01 a.m. on September 19 and September 26. Any vehicles parked in spaces in the outer loop will be subject to ticketing and towing.

Additional weekend closures may be necessary to complete the power upgrades through 2021. Details will be provided and signs posted at a later date.
