UPDATED APRIL 9, 2014! Please read carefully!
Effective Saturday, April 12, 2014 due to construction associated with the Zoo Interchange Project a portion of 76th Street between Bluemound Road and Main Street will close. Once the street closes, Route 76 (ONLY the 76th Street branch) will detour.
Detour routing will be as follows:
Route 76 - 76th Street buses will follow Route 76 - 68th/70th Street bus routing between Bluemound Road and Main Street. Passengers will need to board the Route 76 at comparable stops located as follows:
Along 68th Street between Bluemound Road and 0’Connor Street (north of I-94)
Along 70th Street between Kearny and Main Streets (south of I-94)
Also during this time, pedestrians needing to travel over I-94 will not be required to pay a fare when boarding any Route 76 bus between Bluemound Road and Main Street. This is to help ensure public safety, accessibility and mobility during the Zoo Interchange Project and is sponsored by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation. Please note if a transfer is requested the passenger must pay full fare.
Please note: There will be an additional project along 76th Street between Main Street and Greenfield Avenue. A start date has not yet been set for that project. When that project begins, the above detour will extend south to National Avenue. Please check back for updates.
