UPDATE! WORK COMPLETE! UW buses (no longer) face reroutes on campus June 12-25

EDITOR’S NOTE: THIS WORK CONCLUDED EARLY. BUSES HAVE RETURNED TO REGULAR ROUTING AND ARE SERVING REGULAR CAMPUS STOPS. (Updated 5:55pm Tuesday, June 20)

From Monday, June 12 until about Sunday, June 25, with one 2-day exception, Metro routes 32, 67, 75, 78, 277 and 372, and Sound Transit Express Route 540 will be rerouted off of Grant Lane and Stevens Way, due to construction on the University of Washington campus. We’ve made a handy map to help it all make sense.

During this time, these routes, while traveling in any direction, will travel instead via 15th Avenue Northeast, Northeast Pacific Street and Montlake Boulevard Northeast to and from their regular routes, and depending on the route, destination and direction of travel.

Map depicts bus stops temporarily closed on UW campus June 12-25 and alternate stop locations.

The one exception to the approximate two-week UW campus road closure is the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, June 17 and 18, during which the UW campus and bus stops will be open and these reroutes will not be in effect.

At times when the campus roads are closed and these reroutes are in effect, transit riders should expect possible delays in service for the affected routes. Use the regularly published timetables, wait at designated stops along the reroute and expect possible delays.  Allow plenty of travel time for trips that use these routes.

  1. Having waited 45 minutes for a 67 bus on Pacific Place today, the above information is incorrect!! The 67 buses heading to Northgate are back to running through campus again today (June 19), NOT through June 25.

  2. Also burned by this blog post. Just waited for 45min for the 372 at Montlsje and Pacific. Checked twitter and it was announced that the reroute was changed back 4 days early. Hope this posting gets updated that the repute is no longer in effect!

  3. Sorry for the confusion and misinformation. We updated our alert to riders today. Again, very sorry for the inconvenience.
