Plan ahead, commuters: Fall Address to affect Around the Horn bus route

Erik Petrovich

Around the Horn routes will be changed Wednesday due to Colorado State University President Tony Frank’s annual Fall Address.

The Fall Address will take place at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday on the Oval, followed by the University Picnic.

Around the Horn routes will take a detour around the Oval, causing some of the normal stops to be closed along the regular route.

The northbound route will operate normally until the usual turn at South Mason Street, where instead the bus will continue onto South College Avenue. The bus will turn left onto Laurel Street and continue to the CSU Transit Center. The only stop on this route will be a TransFort stop on Laurel Street, just past the Rainbow Cafe.

The southbound route will avoid the Oval and travel to Laurel Street, where it will turn right onto South Mason Street. After turning right onto University Avenue and left onto East Drive, the route will continue as normal. There will be two stops on this detour: one at the intersection of South Mason and Laurel streets, and one TransFort stop outside the Student Services Center.

Around the Horn is expected to only be affected the day of the Fall Address. The campus bus route will return to normal Thursday.
