BALTIMORE — Light RailLink passengers may soon want to give themselves some extra travel time.

Beginning on Monday, July 22, the MTA says repairs will be made to multiple stops including Cold Spring Lane, Falls Road, Mt. Washington and Woodberry, causing a partial suspension of service on the route from Lutherville to North Avenue.

Construction is expected to last around three weeks and will be completed in tiers.

During that time a free bus bridge with local and express service will be available.

From July 22 through July 25, express services from Lutherville to Camden will operate from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. daily.

Local service however will only take you from Lutherville to North Avenue from 5 a.m. to midnight from Monday through Friday, 6 a.m. to midnight on Saturday and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday.

Then the second tier will start on July 26 and last until August 13.

During that time express and local services will each ride to stops between Falls Road and Camden.

Both services will operate during the same hours it did from July 22 to July 25.

The project is expected to address areas of erosion, and include the replacement of pedestrian walkways and some sections of track.

MTA officials say the time of completion could change depending on weather conditions.

In the meantime, the MTA says it will have travel ambassadors available to assist with individual routes and have signs at each stop guiding customers on where to go.
