Metro’s Monday PM commute wrap up; blockage cleared at 3 Av & James St, plus upcoming construction and events that may impact service

Metro’s Monday evening commute is winding down with all routes returning to normal operation at 3 Av & James St.   The earlier blockage has been cleared.

Routes 21 Express, 37 southbound, 54, 54 Express, 55, 56 Express, 113, 120, 121, 122 and 125 have returned to their regular routing using the new viaduct bypass in SODO.  The temporary stops at 4 Av S & S Lander Stand 4 Av S & S Jackson StIslandwill no longer be served.  Expect some delays in service due to narrow lanes and lower speed limits on the bypass and please be aware that bus times on these routes may be longer than before the viaduct was demolished.

Thank you for your patience during this extended closure.
