    Hi Mooviters, 

    Starting tomorrow, Wood Street Station will be closed for two weeks, Dec. 8-22. The station will be closed to allow for the replacement of all four escalators and to accommodate an ongoing light-rail construction project. There will be weekend service disruptions during construction, continue reading for details.

    Is this your station? Here is what you need to know:

    • Use Steel Plaza or Gateway stations instead.
    • Weekday service: rail cars will continue to serve all other stations in the Central Business District and no delays are expected.
    • Expect the following service disruptions over the weekends, Between 8 p.m. Friday, December 8 and the start of service Monday, December 11; and again between Friday, December 15, and Monday, December 18: 
      • Inbound rail service will terminate at Penn Station (the bus and rail station along the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. East Busway).
        • Riders traveling to Gateway, North Side, or Allegheny stations should exit light-rail vehicles at Penn Station and board a free shuttle bus to Gateway Station. From Gateway, a rail car will operate to North Side and Allegheny stations.
      • Outbound rail service from the North Shore toward downtown will terminate at Gateway Station.
        • Riders continuing toward the South Hills should exit the rail car and board a shuttle bus from the temporary stop outside the station. The shuttle bus will drop riders off at Penn Station to board rail cars heading to the South Hills. Riders should allow for 30-45 minutes of additional travel time. The bus stop located on Liberty Avenue outside Wood Street Station has been moved to Liberty Avenue past Strawberry Way. Shuttle buses will serve that temporary stop.
