Light-rail line construction in north Charlotte is forcing a change in Charlotte Area Transit System’s Route 39 bus service on Eastway Drive.
It is among several CATS bus line changes that went into effect Monday.
The Eastway bridge over the rail lines will be closed soon, causing the change on Route 39. CATS officials say buses now will turn left on Sugar Creek Road, then right on The Plaza, and right onto Eastway Drive to resume the route.
That means service north of The Plaza on Route 39 has been ended. CATS officials said riders can use Route 11 (North Tryon) to go farther north.
