Light Rail Detour Causing Some Confusion Among Commuters

October 10, 2019


CONE — PHONE AND HEARD HIM TALKING ABOUT SELLING THE DRUG. THEY ALSO SAID THEY FOUND MORE THAN 100 GRAMS OF FENTANYL IN HIS CAR. YOU CAN EXPECT SOME DELAYS THIS WEEKEND IF HE USED THE RED LINE. A STRETCH OF TRACK IS CLOSED FOR REPAIRS. WE HAVE MORE ON HOW WRITERS ARE NAVIGATING THE CHANGES. WE ARE NOT SEEING A LOT OF TROUBLE OVER THIS, BUT WE DID TALK TO A FEW PEOPLE, WHO SAYS THAT THEY HAVE BEEN DELAYED BY FIVE OR 10 MINUTES, AND SOME PEOPLE WHO ARE JUST CONFUSED BY ALL OF THE CHANGES. THE RED LINE THAT RUNS INBOUND FROM SOUTH HILLS VILLAGE TO DOWNTOWN IS CLOSED UNTIL TUESDAY MORNING. HERE’S THE TRICKY PART. THAT MEANS PEOPLE WHO WANT TO GO INBOUND BETWEEN CASTLE SHANNON AND THE GARDENS OF THE RED LINE, NEED TO GO OUTBOUND FIRST, AND THEN SWITCH OVER TO THE BLUE LINE TO GO INBOUND. DOES THAT MAKE SENSE? MAYBE JUST A LITTLE BIT ANNOYED. THIS IS KIND OF FRUSTRATING. IT IS. IT IS CONFUSING ALSO. THEY WERE NOT EXACTLY CLEAR AS TO HOW IT SHOULD BE DONE AND WHAT EXACTLY WE SHOULD BE DOING AND WHERE WE SHOULD BE DOING IT. EFFECTIVELY, BY TAKING TIME OUT OF MY DAY, I WAS SUPPOSED TO MEET FRIENDS BEFORE SEEING HAN SOLO. BUT HERE I AM, WAITING ON THE BLUE LINE. I WILL HAVE TO GRAB MY SNEAKERS AND GO TO THE BAR. Reporter: THE RED LINE INBOUND IS CLOSED SO THAT THEY CAN REPLACE A REAL SWITCH. IT OPENS TUESDAY MORNING. THE PORT AUTHORITY SAYS THAT BECAUSE OF THE DISRUPTIONS OVER THIS, YOU CAN EXPECT DELAYS
