Light rail service is disrupted in Folsom due damage to overhead transit power lines.
Regional Transit reports that a big oak tree fell near Folsom Boulevard and Blue Ravine Road during stormy conditions Sunday, knocking out light rail service.
Although crews worked Sunday and continue to work today to fix the extensive damage, light rail trains are still not running in the Folsom area. Instead, RT has shuttle buses carrying passengers between the Historic Folsom station, Glenn station, Iron Point station and Hazel station to the Sunrise station.
No estimated time for restoration of train service has been determined. Service updates will be posted at www.sacrt.com where website viewers can click on "Bus and Light Rail Service Distruptions."
Light rail service on the Gold Line from Sunrise Station to downtown Sacramento and on the Blue Line and Green Line is not affected by the Folsom distruption.
