RTA adjusts routes for St. Patrick’s Day road closures

(DAYTON, OHIO)… Due to road closures along Wayne Avenue for St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, the Greater Dayton RTA will be adjusting Routes 4 and 12 starting Friday, March 15, and lasting through Sunday, March 17.

Wayne Avenue will be closed between Fifth and Bainbridge streets for the annual St. Patrick’s Day celebration at the Dublin Pub restaurant. The reroutes will begin Friday at approximately 10 a.m. and last all day through Sunday. Regular bus routing will resume at the beginning of the service day on Monday, March 18.

There will be no through traffic — northbound or southbound — on Wayne Avenue between Bainbridge and Fifth streets. Starting Friday, eastbound Route 4 will deviate onto Fifth Street, Keowee Street and Xenia Avenue to go around the closure. The westbound Route 4 reroute will be in reverse.

Southbound Route 12 will use Washington Street, Warren Street, Buckeye Street and Wayne Avenue to go around the closure with the northbound reroute going in reverse.

St. Patrick’s Day partygoers who want to be safe and not worry about parking near the party can use the RTA and easily plan their trip to the festivities by using the Transit app.
