Passengers taking the light rail should expect delays as crews work to restore full service between the North Avenue and Falls Road stations through Tuesday, state transportation officials say.

A fallen tree knocked out overhead wires affecting that stretch Sunday afternoon, said Maryland Transit Administration spokesman Terry Owens. A bus has been transporting riders there, and officials expect a partial restoration of light-rail service later today.

"Repair crews have been working diligently," Owens said. "The service will be open, but ... passengers should anticipate delays of 10 to 15 minutes."
