Metro announces major track work through June 30

      Metro has updated its major track work calendar, which details some major projects running through June 30, 2013.

      The calendar is available on the Metro website and shows a description of the work to be performed for several upcoming weeks.

      "I encourage our customers, community groups and other stakeholders to check the calendar for advance notice of the major projects we plan to undertake over the next six months," said Richard Sarles, Metro General Manager & Chief Executive Officer.

      "It is important to understand that these are not merely 'maintenance' projects; we are effectively rebuilding this transit system."

      Metro still uses single tracking to perform track work for smaller projects on weekends and late evening hours on weekdays.
