The West Virginia Department of Transportation will be performing a major road rebuilding project on US Highway 340 between Maryland and West Virginia starting on September 12, 2023. Highway 340 will be closed for 90 days between Maryland and West Virginia.

EPTA connecting bus service from Brunswick Line Train 873 to West Virginia will be suspended beginning September 11 until at least December 11. Bus service to West Virginia will remain for Train 883, however, the road closure and resulting 22-mile detour will add 45 minutes to an hour of trip time. This service is subject to cancellation if traffic conditions do not permit the bus to travel to Brunswick to pick up passengers or in the event of winter weather. Passengers should plan ahead in the event of a service cancellation.
