The intersection of 5th Street and Conley Ave will have periodic closures July 27-31 to repair the roadway and COMO Connect will be detouring the area during this time.
The bus route will be heading north on Tiger Ave, turn left on Rollins St, right on Providence Rd, right on Stewart Rd, and left on 5th Street to return to normal route into downtown Columbia. The bus stop at the intersection of Conley and Tiger, and the bus stop at the intersection of Conley and 5th will be temporarily closed during this detour and customers can walk south to Rollins or north to Stewart to catch the bus.
Due to on-going construction on Elm Street in downtown Columbia, a section of the #2 Gold route will be moved one block north to Locust Street for a long term detour until further notice. This route change affects the #2 Gold route traveling in both directions (#2A Gold and #2B Gold) and will temporarily close four (4) bus stops along Elm, and move them one block north to Locust. Affected bus stops are currently located at Eighth & Elm, and Tenth & Elm.
This construction and new bus route are expected to last until at least August 2016. Updates to the route will be announced in the summer of 2016 as construction project(s) near completion and lanes of traffic are scheduled to reopen.
