The RTA Route 17 bus will have a long-term detour beginning Tuesday in McCook Field due to construction to the Keowee Street bridge. The bridge, that spans over the Great Miami River, will be closed off throughout 2018 and into 2019, according to the City of Dayton.

The Route 17 bus will thus travel from Keowee Street to Interstate 75 onto Wagner Ford Road and back to North Dixie Drive.

North and southbound stops between Keowee Street and Siebenthaler Avenue will be closed during this period.

The closed stops will have signs notifying passengers where the closest stop to board is located.

The northbound stop at North Dixie Road and Wagner Ford Road will still be served but the southbound stop will not. Instead, riders are advised to use to the stop at North Dixie Road and Siebenthaler Avenue to catch the bus.
