Rail News: Maintenance Of Way

Maryland transit agency to partially close Baltimore subway for rail updates


The Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) this summer will shut down a portion of Baltimore Metro Subway service for replacement of major rail components.

From July 23 to August 12, the agency will close the system from the Milford Mill Station in Lochearn, Md., to the Mondawmin Station in Baltimore to replace three interlockings.

The MTA also will perform additional rail replacement, track maintenance, station improvements and cleaning.

"This necessary and critical rail work will further enhance service safety and reliability, and allow trains to move faster through this corridor of the Metro track," said MTA Deputy Administrator Suhair Al Khatib.
