RT Green Line Construction to Temporarily Impact Three Light Rail Stations

Friday, May 13 until Monday, May 16

During the weekend of May 13, 2011, the Sacramento Regional Transit District (RT) will temporarily close three Gold Line light rail stations to perform construction work for the Green Line to the River District light rail extension.

In order to minimize disruptions for passengers and surrounding businesses in downtown Sacramento, construction will start at 6 p.m. on Friday, May 13 and continue until 4 a.m. on Monday, May 16.  This work will require the closure of the 8th & K, Sacramento Valley Station and 7th & I/County Center light rail stations at 7 p.m.

As an alternative, shuttle buses will transport Gold Line passengers to and from the Sacramento Valley Station, and will serve bus stops at 7th and K streets, and 8th and K streets.

During construction, Gold Line light rail trains will continue to serve the 8th & Capitol Station.  Trains will continue north to temporarily serve the St. Rose of Lima Park (9th & K) Station, return to the St. Rose of Lima Park (7th & K) Station, and then resume regular service.

In addition, street closures will take place at the intersections of 7th and H streets, and 8th and H streets:

            6 p.m. on Friday, May 13 through 8 a.m. on Saturday, May 14:
§      Eastbound H Street between 6th Street and 9th Street
§      Southbound 7th Street between F Street and I Street
§      Northbound 8th Street between I Street and G Street
           
            8 a.m. on Saturday, May 14 through 6 a.m. on Monday, May 16:
§      Eastbound H Street between 7th Street and 9th Street
§      Northbound 8th Street between I Street and G Street

This will be the second of three scheduled weekend closures affecting the 8th & K, Sacramento Valley Station and 7th & I/County Center light rail stations in the coming months.

The Green Line to the River District is the first phase of the Green Line to the Airport light rail extension project.  The Green Line to the River District will extend light rail 1.1 miles north to 7th Street and Richards Boulevard at the Township 9 development.
