After stabilizing sections of eroded Light RailLink track in the Cold Spring Lane area and completing other scheduled work, the Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Transit Administration (MDOT MTA) are set to resume regular service beginning on Wednesday, between the Falls Road and North Avenue stops.

The repairs and upgrades were completed one week ahead of schedule.

“Ensuring our Light RailLink system is safe for our riders is our top priority. We thank our customers for their patience during the construction,” said MDOT MTA Administrator Kevin Quinn.

MDOT MTA completed several improvements of the Light RailLink system near Cold Spring Lane during the recent closure. Pedestrian walkways, which allow access to the northbound and southbound tracks, were replaced at the Falls Road, Mount Washington, and Woodberry stops. Some track replacement was also performed near the Woodberry stop.
