COLUMBIA— The 107 FastCAT Express route is scheduled to detour Wednesday night into Thursday morning due to a road closure on South Ninth Street to allow for the installment of windows on the apartment complex located at 308 S. Ninth St.

The route will detour from 10 p.m. Wednesday night until the end of service at 2:30 a.m. on Thursday, according to a press release from Columbia Transit. The route will deviate north on Hitt Street to Broadway, where it will reconnect to the regular route.

From 10 p.m. Thursdayuntil 6 a.m. Friday*, Ninth Street will be closed from Elm Street south to Woodson Way. Ninth Street will also be closed Thursday night from 10 p.m. until 6 a.m. on Friday.

In addition to the Ninth Street detour, four buses will be rerouted on Thursday because of a road closure on Walnut Street between College Avenue and Orr Street. The affected bus routes are 107 FastCAT Express, 102 East, 103 North East and 104 South East.

Bus stops within the detoured area will not be serviced during the closure, and the 107 FastCAT is expected to have delays, according to the press release. Riders can find the closest bus stop at or call Columbia Transit at 874-7282.
