Local News

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) – The Champaign Urbana Mass Transit District wants to make people aware of changes in routes due to the Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon weekend.

Their biggest message is to expect delays.

On Friday, delays are expected due to the 5K race. Reroutes are scheduled to start between 6:30pm and 7:30pm, returning to regular service in about 1.5 hours or after the race route is reopened. 

Saturday, because of the marathon, significant delays are expected. 

Fixed route re-routes throughout the community will start at the beginning of the day. Regular service should start after the race route is open.

Also on Saturday, the Downtown Urbana Lincoln Square bus stop will be split into two stops during the Marathon. One will be at Illinois & Broadway, and the other at Water and Broadway. 

If you need more information about re-routes, you can call 217.384.8188, or visit MTD’s website here.
