Buses will replace Red Line trains east of Tower City during part of the month. Buses will also replace Red, Blue and Green Line trains east of Tower City on several weekends. Mayfield Road at East 119th Street will be closed for three weeks. A full outline is given below.
Parts of the East Side rail system will be shut down for part of June, giving RTA and ODOT crews time to work on a host of projects, including the Innerbelt, track upgrades and work at two stations: Cedar-University and Little Italy-University Circle.
