Southwest BRT - Detours and lane closures

 
 

Lane closures are typically scheduled between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. There may be times when crews need to set up lane closures and detours before 9 a.m. These closures will not be in the direction of the heaviest rush hour traffic flow. Weekend closures are typically planned between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. For the most up-to-date traffic information, follow @yyctransport on twitter.

Traffic has shifted to the south side of 90 Avenue S.W. onto the new underpass vehicle bridge to allow for the second stage of the construction to start.

In this stage of construction, there will be two eastbound to northbound turning lanes. The signal light timing will be adjusted at the intersection to accommodate the revised movements.
