Bridge lift closes part of Cleveland Red Line March 29

Written by 

Major work on the new rail station at Puritas Avenue and West 150th Street in Cleveland will shut down rail service for about two hours in the middle of the day on Monday, March 29. Rush hours are not expected to be affected. Shuttle buses will replace rail service between Hopkins Airport and the West Park Station. The exact time of the two-hour shutdown will not be known until Monday, but it will be between 8:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.

A 110-foot walkway bridge will be lifted from the main parking lot, over the electric wires, across the Norfolk Southern and RTA tracks and into place on the new Rapid station. The work is being done by the Cold Harbor Building Co. of Chardon. Total cost of the project is $9.54 million.
