DETOURS
 
CATA Routes on Summer Detour While on Campus (Valid From 5/12/2014 to 8/25/2014)
Effective Monday, May 12, 2014, as a result of multiple construction projects taking place on the Penn State University Park Campus over the summer months and specifically along North Burrowes Street, Curtin Road and Shortlidge Road, CATABUS service will have little to no access to the core of Campus. All routes will be affected by the construction, and thus a single detour will remain in effect for the summer.

The following is a list of service changes for those routes affected by the detour:

From Curtin Road, the C, HP (to Scenery Park), M, XB and XG Routes will turn right on Bigler Road, left on East Park Avenue, turn left on North Atherton Street, and left onto West Beaver Avenue, where they will resume normal routing. The RED LINK (Westbound) will follow the same routing, turning left onto North Atherton Street, and then right onto White Course Drive, where it will continue its normal routing.

From College Avenue & Allen Street, the B, F, HP (to Toftrees), K, and S Routes and the BLUE LOOP will turn right on North Atherton Street, right on West Park Avenue and right onto Bigler Road, where they will resume their normal routing. The RED LINK (Eastbound) will turn left on North Atherton Street and follow the same routing to Bigler Road, and turn left onto Curtin Road, where it will continue its normal routing.

For those routes that normally access Campus via Curtin Road from North Atherton Street (the N, R, V and W Routes), these will instead turn onto West Park Avenue and take a right onto Bigler Road, where they will resume their normal routing.

From West Park Road going Inbound, the A and G Routes will continue on Park Avenue and turn right onto Bigler Road where they will resume normal routing. Going Outbound from College Avenue, the routes will turn right onto North Atherton Street, where they will resume normal routing.

For the duration of the detour, a number of stops will be closed, including the Pattee Transit Center, and all stops along North Burrowes Street, Curtin Road (between North Atherton Street and Bigler Road), and Allen Road. Those who usually pick their buses up at these stops are encouraged to instead pick up at the regular stops along College Avenue and North Atherton Street, or at any of the temporary stops that have been placed along North Atherton Street and Park Avenue.

Detailed maps illustrating the detour and available temporary stops can be found on the CATA website at http://catabus.com/Announcements/SummerDetours.html.
