Effective: Aug 20, 2018
Beginning Monday, August 20, the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) will begin repairs on the Blue and Green Line. Customers may notice a slight delay as trains depart a select number of light rail stations. RTA expects trains to run on time and according to the published schedule.
RTA will be maintaining and repairing the signal system. The project is expected to take approximately three to four months and will span the areas between E. 79 and Courtland on the Green Line and E. 79 and Lynnfield on the Blue Line.
This is part of 2018's $47 million rail infrastructure repair effort to maintain RTA’s rail system. Earlier this month, RTA completed a Red Line rail project between West 117 and West Park during a three-week shut down that called for the replacement of 7,300 rail ties and improved the track structure, drainage and geometry.
RTA returned the Red Line to full service August 12 and that section of the Red Line is operating at normal speeds.
RTA apologizes for any inconvenience while this necessary project is complete.
