Stretch of Metro Gold Line in Pasadena Reduced to Single Track


On it's way to East Los Angeles, a passenger crosses the street to catch the Metro Gold Line Eastsi

PASADENA (CNS) - Service on a stretch of the Metro Gold Line in Pasadena will be limited to a single track during this morning's commute due to repairs to downed overhead wires that power the trains.

“For (Tuesday's) morning peak a.m. service, trains will continue to single-track through the affected area,” Metro spokesman Dave Sotero said. Trains will run every 10 minutes, and Metro patrons should allow for additional travel time until final repairs have been completed, he said,

Train service was halted on a stretch of the Metro Gold Line in Pasadena Monday due to the downed wires, which occurred around 5:30 a.m. near the Gold Line's Allen Station. Metro initially halted trains between the Allen and Sierra Madre stations to the east, but the closure area was later extended west to the Lake Station.

It was unclear what caused the wires to come down.

Shuttle buses were brought into to carry passengers between the Lake and Sierra Madre stations.

The closure continued until about 8 p.m. when crews completed repairs on Track 1 and single-track service resumed, Sotero said.

Shuttle buses were cancelled, but repairs on Track 2 were expected to continue until late Tuesday, he said.
