Light RailLink Service from Falls Road to North Avenue to Resume on Wednesday, August 7

Crews Expedite Work to Open One Week Ahead of Schedule

BALTIMORE, MD (August 6, 2019) - After stabilizing sections of eroded Light RailLink track in the Cold Spring Lane area and completing other scheduled work, the Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Transit Administration (MDOT MTA) will resume regular service beginning at 5 a.m. Wednesday, August 7, between the Falls Road and North Avenue stops. The repairs and upgrades have been completed one week ahead of schedule.

"Ensuring our Light RailLink system is safe for our riders is our top priority. We thank our customers for their patience during the construction," said MDOT MTA Administrator Kevin Quinn.

MDOT MTA completed several improvements of the Light RailLink system near Cold Spring Lane during the recent closure. Pedestrian walkways, which allow access to the northbound and southbound tracks, were replaced at the Falls Road, Mount Washington and Woodberry stops. Some track replacement was also performed near the Woodberry stop.

Meanwhile, Baltimore City Department of Public Works repairs to the July 8 water main break near Pratt and Howard streets continue to impact Light RailLink service in Baltimore’s Central Business District. Until the water main break is repaired, Light RailLink service is suspended between the Camden and North Avenue stops. A free bus bridge will continue to transport riders to each impacted stop.

MDOT MTA is one of the largest multi-modal transit systems in the United States. MDOT MTA operates a Local Bus and Commuter Bus network, as well as Light RailLink, Metro SubwayLink, MARC Train service and a comprehensive Mobility paratransit system. MDOT MTA's goal is to provide safe, efficient and reliable transit across Maryland with world-class customer service.
