This is the second detour announced by RTA in recent days due to construction projects. Earlier, RTA said buses are re-routed through the summer due to a water main project on Hoover Avenue in Dayton.

In Miamisburg, a bridge-replacement project on South Gebhart Church Road between Ohio 725 and Maue Road will detour traffic until April 19, RTA announced last month.
