Port Authority plans to reopen the closed portion of the Martin Luther King, Jr. East Busway between Grant and 26th Streets this Saturday, Oct. 16.
The section has been closed to bus traffic since July due to the ongoing reconstruction of the busway, causing a bus detour onto Liberty Avenue.The closing is scheduled to end Saturday morning, weather permitting.
At that time, buses no longer will be detoured onto Liberty Avenue, temporary bus stops along Liberty Avenue will be removed and riders may resume use of Penn Station.
Even after the busway reopens, construction activity will continue in this area and other sections through the remainder of the year.
