Elkhart, IN – The scheduled closure of the Norfolk Southern Oakland Avenue and Indiana Railroad Bridge, starting Monday, September 10, will result in routing changes and a temporary construction schedule for the Interurban Trolleys Green Line West fixed route. These schedule changes were made in conjunction with the City of Elkhart.


During the bridge closure, the Green Line will no longer operate along Franklin Street between 3rd Street and Indiana Avenue. Buses on the Northwest Loop will operate from the downtown transfer center via Marion Street, turning left on Oakland Avenue and right on Indiana Avenue, replacing the Southwest Loop service north of the bridge closure.


Southwest Loop buses will leave downtown detouring via the Benham Avenue underpass and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and Indiana Avenue before resuming the regular route on Oakland Avenue south of the bridge closure.


The temporary Green Line schedule change will be result in Lincoln Center serving the Elkhart County Health Department served by the Green Line Northwest Loop at approximately 34 minutes past the hour, instead of its current service on the Southwest Loop at 4 minutes past the hour. Other portions of the Green Line will see schedule adjustments up to 2 minutes to accommodate the routing changes.


For full details of the service change see the Green Line Temporary Construction schedule.
