Light RailLink repairs planned for Hunt Valley through Timonium Fairgrounds stops

Posted at 8:39 PM, Sep 13, 2018

The Maryland Department of Transportation will start repair work for the Light RailLink track between Hunt Valley and Timonium Fairgrounds. 

The track maintenance and rail replacement plan is a part of MDOT MTA’s over $900 million investment in rail infrastructure improvements scheduled over the next several years.

The scheduled maintenance work is expected to last three weeks starting September 14 through October 4.

Officials say rail service will be discontinued during that time for the Hunt Valley, Pepper Road, McCormick Road, Gilroy Road, and Warren Road stops. This also includes discontinued service at the Timonium Fairgrounds stop.

“MDOT MTA recognizes the critical importance transit has for its riders and is making every effort to minimize disruption to its passengers’ commute during this rail work,” said MDOT MTA Administrator Kevin Quinn. 

Due to the inconvenience of discontinued rail service, MDOT MTA will increase bus service on LocalLink #93, which currently runs between the affected stations.
