Partial East Busway Closure Aug. 20-21

Port Authority's Martin Luther King Jr. East Busway will be closed between Neville Ramp and the East Liberty Bus Division this weekend so that City contractors can work on a new pedestrian bridge between Ellsworth Avenue and the Eastside retail development. The closure will detour the P1 East Busway-All Stops bus route and temporarily close the Negley and East Liberty busway stations.

The P1 will detour primarily via Centre and Penn avenues. P1 riders who normally use Negley Station should use stops on Centre at Negley (inbound) and Centre at Negley/Giant Eagle Market District (outbound) during this time. For riders who normally use the East Liberty Station, the P1 will stop on Penn Avenue at Target (inbound) or Penn opposite Target (outbound). Delays are possible due to the P1's use of local roads. View more detour information.

The closure will go into effect with start of service Saturday. The stations and busway portion will reopen for Monday's start of service.
