SECTION METRO RAIL SERVICE TEMPORARILY OUT OF SERVICE!

MAKE SURE YOU’RE READY FOR AN ALTERNATE ROUTE!

A small section of METRORail is temporarily out of service due to downed wires after a vehicle struck a power pole at Fannin and Ewing, near the Museum District station.

METRORail will be using one track to move patrons the stretch between Wheeler and Hermann Park/Rice U station.

A bus bridge will be put in place to help with the morning rush hour. The buses will pick up patrons on San Jacinto for northbound travel and on Main for southbound travel.

Just before 3 a.m. today, a vehicle struck rail wires at Fannin and Ewing. The driver reportedly suffered minor injuries.

METRO anticipates restoring service around noon today. MPD officers will be in the area directing traffic.
