#7 Dark Green Route detour due to construction

The City of Columbia has began road repairs on South Hampton Drive between State Farm Parkway and South Providence Road.  All traffic will be routed eastbound only.

This construction will prohibit the # 7 Dark Green Route from traveling westbound. The # 7 route will detour using Grindstone Parkway (Nifong Boulevard) to South Providence Road, to South Hampton Drive.

All COMO Connect customers accessing South Providence Medical Plaza and State Farm Insurance will have to board and exit the bus at the bus shelter on South Hampton Drive at Rock Bridge High School.

This construction is planned to be completed by mid June 2016.

Winter Weather

In the event of snow or ice this winter, please travel with caution, allow buses more room to stop and navigate icy streets, and be prepared for possible delays if roads become slick. Please check alerts on the COMO Connect app for the latest information regarding bus service or possible delays. 

COMO Connect bus routes are all on first priority snow plow routes, and the city does not anticipate needing to adjust bus schedules during snow events unless roads become very dangerous or impassable. If road conditions worsen and buses need to adjust routes or schedules, customers will be notified on the COMO Connect app, Twitter, and Facebook.
