Transportation Information

ROAD CLOSURES
Should there be a road closure that prevents the bus from getting to your stop, please use the next closest stop location. It is suggested that you teach your child how to get home from alternate stop locations so they are prepared in advance should the bus not be able to stop at the normal location.
 
 
 

ROAD CONSTRUCTION

We received notification from the Borough of Coraopolis that construction on Main Street will be taking place this fall (August through the first week of November).  Main Street will not be closed the entire time, there will be rolling closures based on the section being worked on.  The work is starting at the intersection of Main Street and 6th Avenue working up the hill towards Neely Heights Avenue.  From the plans, it appears they will be working on the right side of the road and sidewalks during the first half of construction and finishing up on the left side of the road.

 

During closures, students that are assigned to stops on Main Street at the cross streets of 6th Avenue and 7th should use stops located on Wood Street.

 

A copy of the Main Street Schedule for construction is listed below.

 

As previously mentioned, please make sure your child is aware how to get home form alternate stop locations.
