- December 16, 2016 Update on Folsom light rail service
On December 12, a trucker transporting an over-sized load ran into one of RT's crossing gate mechanisms at the Natoma intersection at Folsom Boulevard in the City of Folsom. The gate mechanism came in contact with the overhead wire that the trains operate on, which in turn sent high voltage into RT's signal and grade crossing protection systems causing extensive damage. Some of the repair work will be done off site, but it may take up to two months to complete. We are exploring ways to get the work done as fast as possible.
We are operating a shuttle bus from the Historic Folsom Station to the Iron Point Station until repairs are completed, and updates about service changes will be posted as they occur. Because shuttle buses operate on surface streets, they are subject to traffic delays and the timing may be off when connecting passengers to light rail at Iron Point Station. Passengers may find it more convenient to park and ride from the Iron Point Station; or, Sunrise Station for more frequent light rail service.
As of Tuesday, December 20, 2016, in order for riders to better connect with light rail trains at the Iron Point Station, RT shuttle buses will depart the Historic Folsom Station at the following temporary times:
Monday - Friday: Every :15 and :45 of the hour, with the first trip at 4:45 a.m. and the last trip at 7:15 p.m.
Saturday: Every :15 and :45 of the hour, with the first trip at 7:15 a.m. and the last trip at 7:15 p.m.
Sunday: Every :15 and :45 of the hour, with the first trip at 9:45 a.m. and the last trip at 7:15 p.m.
Please note that the shuttle buses will arrive at the Glenn Station approximately five minutes later to pick up and drop off passengers.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
- A non-RT incident at Glenn Drive and Folsom Boulevard on Monday, December 12 caused major damage to the power structures at Natoma Crossing. RT will operate a bus bridge on the Gold Line from Historic Folsom to Iron Point stations until further notice.
Commuters traveling to downtown, and Golden 1 Center riders should park at Iron Point, Hazel or Sunrise Station for regular light rail service.
- During major Golden 1 Center events, RT Routes 11, 15, 30, 38, 51, 62, 86 and 88 may have to detour based on traffic conditions and road closures with little or no notice.
- Bus Stop 3179 on Howe Ave southbound at Marconi Ave on Route 87 will be closed until further notice due to construction
- Rider Alert: 7th & K Station will permanently close effective (end of service day) on Friday, September 30, 2016.
