Capital Metro said the construction along the downtown section of the route on Guadalupe and Lacava streets will not delay MetroRapid buses’ start date.

The MetroRapid buses, which are scheduled to start running on Sunday, January 26, will reroute around construction zones instead. Samantha Park with the Austin Transportation Department said there will still be lane closures on Guadalupe and Lavaca at 8th Street for another month, but Capital Metro is used to working with the city to reroute around construction zones.

It is unclear whether other locations along the MetroRapid route will close lanes due to construction. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
