METRO moves toward completion of its Green Line with construction of the Harrisburg Blvd. overpass, which will take light rail trains and cars over the busy Union Pacific East Belt freight rail line.

Beginning March 13, traffic along Harrisburg between Cesar Chavez and Lockwood will be detoured for 90 days. 

METRO encourages patrons to continue to shop the area's merchants by using the U-turns built into the detour route.
