Major Disruption For RT Light Rail

June 12, 8:45 A.M.: Regional Transit reported that all repairs are complete and service has resumed.


Sacramento light rail service will have a major disruption this weekend as construction crews work 24 hours-a-day to replace an aging switch.

The shut down will take place at the 13th Street station starting Friday at 7 p.m. and is expected to continue through early Monday morning.

Regional Transit says the 30-year-old switch is a critical component and must be replaced.

During the closure the Red, Blue, and Green lines will have segments where busses will be used as a temporary bridge for service.
