Starting Monday, March 5, the Main Street underpass of the Route 1 bridge will be closed to bus traffic due to height restrictions. We have identified the necessary detours for each of our bus routes and do not see this affecting morning pick-up times. Afternoon drop-off times could be delayed several minutes for bus runs that typically travel under the bridge. After Monday’s runs, we should have a good estimate of how each trip will be impacted, and we thank you for your patience.
