The school district has been notified that the bridge closing will not take place until. Please make plans accordingly for bus detours at that time.
River Street (Hwy 69) from Federal Avenue to Main Street will be closed to through traffic. Traffic will be detoured using County D, Remy Road crossing Fahey’s Bridge and Hwy 92. This detour will disrupt three bus routes, Bus 8 (Orange Cat), Bus 9 (Black Bear) and Bus 14 (Green Dinosaur). All other routes will not be affected.
If your student(s) ride any of the three routes mentioned, please have them ready to board 5 minutes earlier each morning once the detour is in place. This also affects the rural riders as we will be starting the routes 5 minutes earlier. Conversely, you can expect them to arrive home in the afternoon a bit later. All stops will remain the same with the exception of River Street and Serve-us Street on Bus 9. That stop will be moved to Serve-us Street and North Park Street.
Thank you for your understanding and don’t hesitate to contact Rodger Goke with questions or concerns. He can be reached at (608) 335-4599.
