Beginning Friday morning and until further notice, some bus routes for Blades, Bernard and Oakville High will be changing due to a bridge problem on Baumgartner Road, between Heintz Road and Birch Mount Place. The bridge has been deemed unsafe for traffic. For homes in that area, the District will use the same alternative bus stops that were created during the winter floods. The pick up and drop off times remain the same, but slight delays could occur due to the detour. Thank you in advance for your understanding and patience.
