Heat Halts Sacramento Light Rail

Apparently the budget isn’t the only thing that has come to a screeching halt in Sacramento.  KXTV is reporting that extreme heat affected light rail service overhead wire connections at 7th and K streets Monday, disrupting train light railservice shortly after 3 p.m.

Sacramento Department of Transportation crews were working to repair the connections for the Blue and Gold Line services.   

Passengers traveling on the light rail from Meadowview and Folsom toward the central business district were urged to board buses at 16th Street. Travelers going from Interstate 80 at Watt Avenue should board buses at Alkali Flat.

Until the train service is restored, buses will travel between the Alkali Flat/La Valentine light rail station along K Street to the Archives Plaza station. The buses will stop at each station on the way to pick up and drop off light rail passengers.
