Track repairs closing down portion of Baltimore Light Rail
BALTIMORE (WBFF) – Track repairs will close down a portion of the Light Rail in downtown Baltimore at the end of the week.
On Monday the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) announced it will halt Light Rail service along Mt. Royal Avenue near Dolphin Street in the Central Business District from March 24-26. The Camden Yards, Lexington Market, Mt. Royal and North Avenue stations will be closed.
Service will shut down on Friday, March 24 at 6 p.m., resuming at 11 a.m. on Sunday, March 26.
During the temporary shutdown, a free shuttle bus will be provided by MTA, serving customers traveling in both directions from the Camden Yards station to the North Avenue station, which will make stops at each of the closed stations along the way.
“The safety of our customers is our number one priority,” said MTA Deputy Administrator Suhair Al Khatib. “Not only will this track work help to increase safety for the transit riding public, it will enhance the efficiency and reliability of the entire Light Rail system.”
Should the repairs need to be postponed due to weather, the project will be moved to March 31-April 2.
