(DAYTON, OHIO)…The Greater Dayton RTA will begin an extended detour around a major road construction project on Xenia Avenue beginning Monday, Aug. 6.
The City of Dayton will be working on a water pipe replacement project that will impact traffic. RTA buses have planned a reroute around the construction area. All stops between Xenia Avenue at Boltin Street and the Linden Avenue intersection will be closed during the detour.
Eastbound Route 4: RTA buses on Xenia Avenue will turn left onto Boltin Street, right onto Hamilton Avenue, right onto Linden Avenue until back to regular routing once the buses cross the intersection of Xenia Avenue.
Westbound Route 4: RTA buses on Linden Avenue will continue past Xenia Avenue and turn left onto Huffman Avenue, left onto Boltin Street and right onto Xenia Avenue, then back to the regular route.
The RTA will add four temporary stops during the detour: Two stops at Xenia and Boltin and two stops at the north end of the intersection of Xenia and Linden.
