Fallen trees cause MTA light rail disruptions, impacting Ravens game day transportation

High winds have knocked trees down onto overheard wires near the Woodberry and Mt. Washington Light RailLink stations, blocking tracks and disrupting service, transportation officials said Sunday afternoon.

Buses will take light rail riders between the North Avenue and Timonium Fairgrounds stations while maintenance teams make repairs, according to an advisory from the the Maryland Transit Administration.

“We are asking customers to please plan ahead and allow extra time for your travels during this time. Repair updates will continue to be provided,” the MTA wrote in the advisory.

The Ravens said in a tweet Sunday that MTA buses would be waiting at North Avenue to take passengers northbound.

Transit options for fans traveling to the the Ravens game included extra shuttle buses running from the Timonium Fairgrounds, Lutherville and Cromwell/Glen Burnie Light Rail stops directly to the Hamburg Light Rail stop in addition to light rail service, the MTA said in a separate advisory.

Beginning at 3 p.m. Sunday, southbound Light Rail trains are only traveling to Cromwell/Glen Burnie, making all station stops. All those traveling to BWI Marshall Airport should plan to get off the light rail at North Linthicum, then take the shuttle bus to the airport, according to the MTA.
