LYNX Blue Line Service Disruption
Service on the LYNX Blue Line is
experiencing an unforeseen disruption due to a broken insulator on the overhead
catenary system (OCS) south of New Bern Station.
The OCS is the system
that powers the light trains. Repairs are currently being made and are
expected to take several hours which may affect afternoon rush hour. A
bus bridge is in place between I-485 and New Bern stations. Trains are operating
between New Bern and 7th Street stations. We ask the riding
public to allow for extra travel time and to be patient as we make repairs and
safely return to normal service.
