Campus Road Becomes One

 

Campus Road Becomes One-Way Street Due to Busway Renovation

 

Beginning Monday, March 22, 2004, Campus Road will become a one-way street for vehicle and bus traffic.  This street restructuring is due to the renovation of the busway station (located at the south end of campus), scheduled to begin in mid-March.  For the next nine to 12 months, the existing busway station will undergo extensive reconstruction closing access for buses and shuttles.  Buses will be rerouted onto Campus Road and will turn south on PRC (Paseo Rancho Castilla).  A bus bench will be installed on the east side of Campus Road, where passengers will now board buses and shuttles currently accessible at the busway station.  Signage will also be posted to identify bus and shuttle stops.  The street will also allow vehicle traffic northbound to PRC.  However, vehicles will no longer be able to travel south on Campus Road.

 

When completed, the campus busway station will expand the existing bus hub to add bus bays, lighting and substantially improved safety and pedestrian access between the transit center and the campus. The project, funded by the City of Los Angeles, is expected to be completed by Winter Quarter 2005. It will serve as a transit center for Metrolink, the El Monte Busway, MTA lines 65, 71, 170 and 256, as well as neighborhood shuttles.
