Downtown Light Rail Closed This Weekend
Businesses and residences will be open as usual, but construction between the Downtown Transit Center and UH-Downtown stations will be suspended and buses will be used instead.
The shuttle buses will operate every 10 minutes, Metro says.
Why the shutdown? " Systems ductbank work and demolition preparing for new track for METRORail expansion," says the agency.
Regular rail service will continue between the DTC and Fannin South.
The shutdown will take effect from 9 p.m., Friday, Sept. 14, 2012 to midnight, Sunday, Sept. 16, with regular service back up Monday morning.
