GoCary Service Alert for Route 3 - Temporary Closures
Due to detours as a result of the NW Cary Parkway Bridge Rehabilitation, Route 3 will not stop at the following locations for a period of sixty days:
- Norwell Blvd. at North Cary Park
- Norwell Blvd. at Weston Oaks Court
- Norwell Blvd. at Bexley Bluff Lane
- Norwell Blvd. at Weston Parkway
- 6303 Weston Parkway
- 5001 Weston Parkway
- Weston Parkway at Winstead Drive
- Weston Parkway at Southhill Drive
GoCary will provide courtesy drop offs to the affected stops during the week of June 11 only. Please alert the driver on Route 3 that you need to be dropped off at a closed stop, and they will call for a vehicle.
Why are these stops not being served?
Town of Cary staff studied multiple potential detour routes to minimize impacts to Route 3 as a result of the Cary Parkway bridge closure. Staff determined there was no potential detour routing that would allow us to serve all stops while 1) maintaining system scheduling and 2) minimizing disruption to connecting routes. Stop-level passenger boarding data compiled in May 2018 was analyzed to determine the volume of riders served at each stop and prioritize service to the most heavily-used stops.
