Cumberland Avenue Corridor Project Begins

The Cumberland Avenue Corridor Project has begun. KAT buses that use Cumberland Avenue (Route 10 & 11) will continue on regular routing during this initial phase of construction, but passengers should expect some delays due to traffic, as well as changes in where you can board or get off the bus along the Cumberland Corridor. Some westbound stops around 22nd Street will be removed due to the construction work-- information will be posted at these stops. As construction progresses, KAT will be offering some ways to make it as easy as possible for passengers needing to get to, or through, the Cumberland area, so watch for details in the days ahead!
