CLEVELAND — The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority announced Friday that it has shut down its Red Line to repair a communications wire.

The shutdown is expected to last until Sunday at 3 a.m.

"The damaged communication’s wire enables RTA to obtain data and oversee rail operations on the Eastside," RTA said.

Buses will replace the Red Line while work is done.

"RTA will operate 66R Red Line Replacement Bus Service between Cedar and Windermere during the shutdown. Riders can utilize Transit App to plan their trips and see when their bus will arrive at their stop," the agency said.
