Downed Power Line Disrupts Christmas Morning Light Rail Travel

SACRAMENTO — The Sacramento Regional Transit District reports downed power lines early Monday morning interrupted the service’s north Blue Line.

Along Royal Oaks Drive just before 4 a.m., a Sacramento Municipal Utility District power line fell, greatly damaging the light rail’s nearby wire system. SacRT has not confirmed how the power line initially fell.

A bus bridge was established between the Alkali Flat and the Watt and Interstate 80 stations.

Just before 12:40 p.m. SacRT tweeted that all train operations were back up and running.

SacRT was operating on a holiday schedule for Christmas.
