Muni Rail Service Resumes After Overnight Repairs

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) - Repairs on downed San Francisco Municipal Railway overhead lines in the Castro District were completed early Friday morning and the morning's commute was expected to run as normal, according to Muni officials.

Around 2 p.m. Thursday overhead lines came down near Muni's Church station at Church and Market streets, Muni spokesman Paul Rose said.

Repair work disrupted the K, L and M light-rail lines and shuttle buses were used in their place between the West Portal and Church stations.

Repairs were completed around 1 a.m. Friday morning.

Thursday evening crews finished repairing wires that had come down at a different location at Van Ness Avenue and Market Street also around 2 p.m. when a large semi truck carrying cars snagged overhead wires, Rose said.
