SCAT Routes 7, 8 Detoured During October

Sarasota County Area Transit has to detour routes 7 and 8 due to an Orange Avenue drainage project.

Sarasota County Area Transit bus riders will face detours on SCAT Routes 7 and 8 in the Orange Avenue area starting today.

The detours are expected to last through the month because of the city's Orange Avenue drainage project. 

SCAT bus stops on Orange Avenue will be closed between 17th and 21st streets. The closure will affect Route 7 (Newtown-Northeast Plaza) and Route 8 (Newtown-U.S. 301).

Route 7 will be detoured at the intersection of 17th Street and Osprey Avenue. The detour route will be east on 17th Street, north on Gillespie Avenue and west on 21st Street, then back to the main route at Orange Avenue and 21st Street.

Route 8 will continue to serve the Pines of Sarasota and the mobile home park along Orange Avenue. At 17th Street, the Route 8 bus will turn east to follow the Route 7 detour on 17th Street, north on Gillespie Avenue and west on 21st Street, then returning to the main route at Orange Avenue and 21st Street.

For both routes, service north of 21st and south of 17th Street will not be affected by the detour.
