Wednesday, April 20 Scott Avenue at Grand MetroLink Station to Close for 8 WeeksReturn to Blog
To accommodate construction on the Grand Bridge, Scott Avenue from the Grand MetroLink Station to just west of Theresa WILL BE CLOSED TO BUS TRAFFIC for up to 8 weeks starting Wednesday, April 20.
Passengers will board and alight at the new bus turn around on Scott at Theresa and walk to & from Grand Station. The Grand bus will be rerouted to operate via Compton Avenue in both directions.

Additional waiting area will be added at bus turnaround on Monday and Tuesday, but passengers will be without shelters until then.
Metro Transit Service Managers will be out on Wednesday to help guide customers, as well as signage at the Grand MetroLink Station and Theresa St. boarding area. No service delay or time changes are expected with this new route.

Again, why bother keeping the Grand station open right now? If it’s not ok for busses to be near the station on Scott why/how is it ok for pedesterians? I would think it would be easier for many if the #70 was just rerouted to Union Station the entire time the project is going on instead of constantly having to be on the lookout for service/location changes.
Thanks for the comment Sally! I’ve forwarded it on to Customer Service and our planning and MetroLink operations department, and I’ll respond back with an answer.
Sally, with my 19 years of volunteerism with Metro, I have seen this type of garbage before. Planning has pulled this stunt while the Ballas Transit Center was still being constructed. But your comments has been passed on to the ones that’s handling this!
