Metro is warning Gold Line commuters to expect continued delays through peak commuting hours this afternoon and evening as crews work to repair overhead wires that were damaged Monday afternoon.

Trains will be running every 20 minutes instead of 6 minutes between 3 p.m. and 5:45 p.m. across the entire Gold Line, which runs from East Los Angeles to Pasadena, according to agency spokesman Dave Sotero.  Trains will be sharing a single track between the Heritage Square and Lincoln/Cypress Gold Line Stations.

Metro will be running express bus shuttles between Union Station and  the Highland Park station.

Officials have not determined what damaged the power lines but Sotero said repairs are expected to be completed in time for the Wednesday morning commute.
