Pitkin Street will be closed just east of Mason Street beginning Thursday, May 23, 2013. The closure will last approximately three to four weeks into early June, as crews conduct utility work and reconstruct the intersection as part of the MAX Bus Rapid Transit system project.

Eastbound traffic on Pitkin Street through the Colorado State University campus will be detoured north on Mason Street to University Avenue. Westbound traffic will be detoured onto College Avenue to either Lake Street or University Avenue. Pedestrians on the east side of the closure will be directed to detour on East Drive.

MAX is on the Way!
Construction of the MAX Bus Rapid Transit system will continue until early 2014, with MAX service beginning in May 2014. MAX will offer passengers rail-like convenience at 12 stations and 2 transit centers between Downtown and Harmony Road, with service every 10 minutes and real-time bus arrival information at each station. MAX will connect Downtown Fort Collins, Colorado State University, Midtown and south Fort Collins, providing new economic redevelopment opportunities near station locations.
