SALT LAKE CITY (News4Utah) – Utah Transit Authority will suspend service to the S-Line Saturday and Sunday.
There will be no service Saturday, October 20 and Sunday, October 21 while construction crews work to make improvements to the line.
Crews will be preparing to connect a new double track for the S-Line between 300 East and 500 East. UTA said this will necessitate shutting down the power lines which propel the S-Line trains.
Enhanced service will be provided on bus Route 21 running from the Central Pointe Station to McClelland Street. The enhanced service will pick up and drop off passengers at all stops on 2100 South from McClelland Street to the Central Pointe Station.
Route 21 will operate during the same hours the S-Line is normally scheduled to run. Extra shuttles will service the Fairmont, Sugarmont and Central Pointe stations
Signage will be posted at all S-Line stations instructing passengers to go to 2100 South to catch Route 21 buses.
There will be another suspension of service for the S-Line the weekend of November 10-11 to allow for the installation of more equipment required to operate a faster double track system.
