Blue Line-Library Detours 9/23-9/25

A portion of the Library line will be closed and Blue Line T service will detour this weekend so that Port Authority can conduct track work at the South Park Road crossing and near the Beagle Stop.

Work will begin at approximately 7 p.m. on Friday, September 23 and continue all weekend until approximately 4:30 a.m. on Monday, September 26. During this time, light rail service will not operate south of Lytle Station. Instead, special Port Authority shuttle buses will operate from Lytle Station to Library Station, serving temporary bus stops adjacent to affected light rail stops. Riders may transfer to/from Blue Line-Library light rail service at Lytle.

Regular Blue Line-Library service is expected to resume with the start of Monday’s a.m. commute.

Additionally, approximately 30 parking spaces at the Lytle Station Park and Ride lot will be used for staging equipment, and will be unavailable this week as well during the work.

Motorists should be aware that South Park Road will be closed at the light rail crossing at Brightwood Road for the duration of the project. A posted detour will be provided for auto traffic.

Friday night’s Blue Line-South Hills Village service is unaffected by this project.
