HOSPITAL BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION
TO IMPACT RAIL SERVICE THIS WEEKEND
METRORail service will be suspended this weekend, Jan. 21 -23, 2011 to allow Texas Children’s Hospital to construct a pedestrian bridge over Fannin Street that will connect all of the hospital’s patient care facilities.
Friday, Jan. 21 at 8:00 p.m. to Sunday, Jan. 23 at midnight
During the shutdowns, rail customers will be served by shuttle buses running parallel to the rail lines both north and south. Texas Medical Center patrons who normally board from platforms at the Memorial Hermann Hospital/Houston Zoo or Dryden/TMC can find the shuttle bus on Main Street for travel north and southbound. METRO representatives will be on hand in these areas to assist patrons. Rider Alert
Passengers who normally board METRORail at the Main Street Square platform can also catch the shuttle bus at Main and Walker (northbound) and Main and Dallas (southbound).
Customers traveling on the shuttle bus are advised to allow extra time (about double) for the trip.
Normal rail service will resume Monday morning.
