Red Line Detours This Sunday, July 22

Red Line T service will be detoured this Sunday due to scheduled rail maintenance. A portion of the inbound Red Line will be closed in Beechview from approximately 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday, July 22.

During this time, inbound Red Line service will serve regular route from South Hills Village to Overbrook Junction/Willow, then detour via the Blue Line’s routing until South Hills Junction, where it will resume regular routing to Station Square, Downtown and the North Shore.

Inbound local light rail shuttles will operate from Overbrook Junction to Potomac  Station, and inbound T stops from Potomac to South Hills Junction/Station Square will be served by bus shuttles. Shuttle stops will be located close to existing T stops. At South Hills Junction or Station Square, riders may transfer to bus or T for service toward Downtown.

Outbound Red Line service will not be affected by the work and will be regular route for all stops. Red Line riders may also ride outbound service to Overbrook Junction, then cross over to Willow for T service to Downtown.

Red Line riders should allow for extra time when traveling during the detour.

A map of the detour is posted below.
