Downed overhead wires causing major delays on Gold Line trains [updated]

This not a good way to start the work week. Gold Line trains  are running only once every half hour through Northeast L.A. and Pasadena this morning as crews work to repair downed overhead wires, according to Metro. Service could be delayed for up to one hour, said My News LA.

The agency is running trains on only the southbound tracks between the Fillmore and the Highland Park Stations. Shuttle buses are also running between the Del Mar station and Union Station.

Repairs are expected to take all morning to the lines and equipment in the Pasadena-South Pasadena area.

Update: Metro warned passengers to be prepared for delays during the evening commute as repairs continue on 100 fee of overhead wires. Here’s their statement:

“Starting at 3 p.m. trains will run every 10 minutes with all northbound trains turning back at Southwest Museum and returning to Atlantic Station. Additionally, all southbound trips from APU/Citrus will end at Fillmore Station in Pasadena and return to APU/Citrus College Station in Azusa. A shuttle train will run approximately every 30 minutes in both directions between Southwest Museum, Highland Park, South Pasadena and Fillmore stations. Supplementary buses will also be available in both directions only between Southwest Museum, Highland Park, South Pasadena and Fillmore stations. Buses will board outside of each station, except Highland Park — where riders will need to board at Figueroa/Avenue 59. There is no estimate on when normal Gold Line service will be restored.”
