RIPTA TO DETOUR ROUTE 6 (Prairie/R.W. Zoo) NEAR CCRI AND HOSPITAL CAMPUSES

Detour in Effect Now Through April 1, 2014


The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) announced today that Route 6 (Prairie/R.W. Zoo) will be on detour now through April 1, 2014. RIPTA began detouring Route 6 (Prairie/R.W. Zoo) on Friday, January 3, 2014 due to effects from the first major snowstorm of the season. Heavily accumulated unplowed snow combined with congested parking on narrow roads such as these make it difficult for RIPTA vehicles to travel through safely. As a precautionary safety measure, Route 6 (Prairie/R.W. Zoo) will remain on detour the rest of the winter season.

The following detour is in effect now through April 1, 2014.

Route 6 (Prairie/R.W. Zoo):
Inbound trips will travel the regular route to the intersection of Prairie Avenue and Public Street and then continue straight on Prairie Avenue, right onto Blackstone Street, left onto Gay Street, left onto Dudley Street, right onto Prairie Avenue, and then resume regular route.
Outbound trips will travel the regular route to the intersection of Prairie Avenue and Pearl Street, and then continue straight on Prairie Avenue, left onto Blackstone Street, left onto Gay Street, left onto Dudley Street, left onto Prairie Avenue, and then resume regular route.

CCRI students should use the RIPTA bus stop located on Blackstone Street at the CCRI North Gate Parking Lot entrance for both inbound and outbound trips.
