Wall collapse closes Lee Road Station on Cleveland's Blue Line

Written by 

A wall collapsed around 1 p.m. Saturday at the Lee Road Station on the Blue Line of the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority. The track was not damaged, but pedestrians cannot board there. The station was shut down immediately, and the Blue Line ceased operation. On Saturday and Sunday, RTA operated shuttle buses on the Blue Line, from Shaker Square to the end of the line at the Warrensville-Van Aken Station.

On Sunday morning, a crane and a contractor began removing the debris and taking down the rest of the wall. Monday is a workday for most commuters and also Opening Day for the Cleveland Indians. The Blue Line will operate, but the Lee Road Station will remain closed. Shuttle buses will operate to take riders from Lee Road to a nearby station.

The shuttle buses will continue to operate until April 15, when the Lee Road Station is expected to re-open.
