Starting Friday, Capital Metro will temporarily halt rail service between its Leander and Lakeline stations, according to the transportation authority’s website.
MetroRail service is expected to resume June 29 after the closure, which is related to construction on the track.
This announcement comes after Capital Metro President and CEO Randy Clarke announced in May that the authority would begin three pilot programs this summer, including Positive Train Control, a federally-mandated signaling system. The first segment under construction for the system is in Leander, he said.

JUNE 15-29: Due to construction work along the track, MetroRail service between Lakeline & Leander Stations will be suspended. Alternative services are available! Plan your commute: https://t.co/yYDLm2O6eh Thanks for your patience while we work to improve MetroRail. pic.twitter.com/7u3oIZnTjJ
