Capital Transit temporarily closes two route stops

Officials say they will be back in service later in the month

Capital Transit is closing some stops.

The city announced in a news release that Capital Transit routes 3 and 4 stops along Davis Avenue and Lemon Creek Road will be closed until further notice.

The closure is due in part to the current road construction and related delays a part of the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities’ Glacier Highway improvements project happening in the area, according to the city.

Richard Ross, Capital Transit Superintendent, said the closure is only temporary and not due to a staffing shortage. He said residents can likely expect the routes to go back into service sometime in late October, but said he couldn’t give a specific date.

He said Capital Transit will continue to provide service through the Lemon Creek neighborhood along Glacier Highway.
