BALTIMORE (WMAR) — The Light RailLink track in the Cold Spring Lane area will resume regular service beginning at 5 a.m. Wednesday, August 7, between the Falls Road and North Avenue stops.

Repairs and upgrades to the tracks were completed one week ahead of schedule according to officials.

During the two week closure, several improvements were made including the replacement of pedestrian walkways at the Falls Road, Mount Washington and Woodberry stops. Some track replacement was also performed near the Woodberry stop.

Meanwhile, Baltimore City Department of Public Works crews are continuing to make repairs near Pratt and Howard streets from a July 8 water main break, which means Light RailLink services will remain suspended between the Camden and North Avenue stops.

A free bus bridge will continue to transport riders to each impacted stop.
