METRO delays rail opening until May
More delays have plagued the METRORail on Wheeler Street, which will run alongside the south side of campus. The opening of the Purple line has now been delayed to May, although an exact date has not been set.
“We hope to have an exact date within a week,” Vice President and Senior Press Officer of METRO Jerome Gray said. “The contractor was delayed a few weeks in turning over the system to METRO for our pre-revenue testing.”
This is the second delay for the rail line, which was originally set to open in December but delayed to April.
