West Campus Detour (ENDING 4/21/2019 @ MIDNIGHT)

Bissell Rd. Closed

Post Date:03/14/2019 11:45 AM

ENDING SUNDAY, APRIL 21st (MIDNIGHT): See the new detour post West Campus Detour Phase III (Bissell & Union Closed) which begins 4/22/2019.

ADJUSTED DETOUR #3 (per Iowa State):  Effective immediately, 3/25/2019 at 2:30 PM, CyRide has modified this detour to not travel directly by Design Hall per I S U's request.  This will not impact any bus stops but will likely lengthen the travel time of bus routes through campus. Passengers may want to take an earlier trip to reach their destination on time as a result.  Additionally, buses will not stop at the bus stops on Hyland at Hyland/Oakland, with the exception of the #2 Green Route, to keep routes more on time.  Passengers should catch #3 Blue, #6 Brown, #9 Plum, #21 Cardinal, and #25 Gold routes on Osborn Drive (Armory or Coover Hall) or on Union Drive (Beyer Hall or State Gym).

ADJUSTED DETOUR #2 START DATE PER IOWA STATE:  Beginning Monday, March 18th, CyRide will detour all bus routes from operating on Bissell Road (near Howe & Sweeney Halls).  Please note that CyRide was recently notified by Iowa State that they will not close Bissell this afternoon (3/15/2019) at 5pm but will do so next week on Monday, March 18th. Therefore, CyRide will begin the detour at the beginning of service on 3/18/2019. 

Iowa State is recommencing construction on Bissell Road to finalize improvements on the west side of I S U campus. Eventually, Union Drive by Enrollment Services will also be reconstructed including the road and sidewalks through this west campus area. CyRide anticipates this construction to remain ongoing until Fall 2019 with additional closure of Union Drive by enrollment services beginning in early spring.  Additional detours will be added by CyRide as this construction progresses. For more information about these improvements, please visit:  https://www.inside.iastate.edu/article/2018/02/22/westside

Routes that will be impacted by this construction include: #2 Green, #3 Blue, #6 Brown, #9 Plum, #21 Cardinal, and #25 Gold. Passengers typically boarding on Bissell Road can alternatively board on Osborn Drive or Union Drive.   Additionally, transfers that normally occur at Beyer Hall/State Gym between #1 Red, #2 Green and #7 Purple routes will occur one block west on West St. View the detour map for more information.

Specifically, the following bus stops will be completely closed:

  • Howe Hall (#2541)
  • Sweeney Hall (#2540)

The specific detour for each route is as follows: 

  • #2 Green West: Normal route to Osborn Dr./Bissell Rd., north on Bissell Rd. to Pammel Dr., west on Pammel Dr. to Hyland Ave., south on Hyland to Oakland St., east on Oakland to Sheldon Ave., south on Sheldon Ave. to Union Dr./West St., west on West St. and resume normal route.
  • #2 Green East: Normal route to West St./Union Dr. and Sheldon Ave., north on Sheldon Ave. to Oakland St., west on Oakland St. to Hyland Ave., north on Hyland Ave. to Pammel, east on Pammel Dr. to Bissell Rd., south on Bissell Rd. to Osborn Dr. , east on Osborn Dr. and resume normal route.

Duff area.  Therefore, the #3 Blue will not pick up at Memorial Union, Lower Friley or along Lincoln Way for eastbound stops between Welch and Union Drive.  Passengers wanting to board in these areas to travel back to south Ames will board as the bus travels to campus and ride the bus counter clockwise around campus.)
