TRAX trains will begin running on the new Medical Center line extension today, as operators begin training on the latest light-rail expansion.
Passenger service will not begin until the line officially opens Sept. 29. However, this still marks completion more than a year ahead of schedule.
The medical line runs north of the Stadium Station and then east along South Campus Drive and Campus Center Drive. The line then turns north at Wasatch Drive and continues on to Medical Center Drive. It terminates near the University Health Sciences Center.
Drivers in the area are encouraged to be alert for the new rail line. Pedestrians should never jaywalk in the area.
