Construction causes changes to Local Route 15 along 6th Ave

UPDATE:
Crews are anticipating shifting construction work to the west side of the roadway on Friday, Aug. 2, 2019. DART is working to coordinate a list of impacted bus stops and locations, and will update this page as soon as they are available.

Riders with comments or questions regarding the construction work and impact to Local Route 15 are asked to email DART Customer Service.

ORIGINAL POST:
DART is working with The City of Des Moines to update which bus stops are closed, or open along a portion of 6th Avenue during construction. These closures are just a phase of several changes DART will need to make to its service during the reconstruction project on portions of 6th Ave. These closures and changes impact Local Route 15.

Ongoing construction is limiting or closing sidewalk access along portions of 6th Avenue, including stretches between College and Franklin Ave. and between Franklin Ave. and Hickman Rd. 

Because of this, the following DART bus stops will be closed effective Thursday, April 11:

  • Stop #543 

  • Stop #544 

  • Stop #575 

  • Stop #576

  • Stop #594

Riders are instead asked to use:

  • stop #566 or stop #567 located on 6th Ave near the intersection with Franklin Ave, 
  • stop #595 located on 6th Ave near the intersection with Washington Ave,
  • temporary stop #594 which has been added to 6th Avenue between Washington and Jefferson Avenues,
  • or bus stop #556 or the additional temporary bus stop #553 located on 6th Ave near the intersection with College Ave.
