Broken overhead wire causes problems on 3 light rail lines

DENVER -- Three RTD light rail lines were shut down because of a broken overhead electric line on Tuesday morning.

The wire, which powers the trains, broke near Broadway and Interstate 25, disrupting the E, F and H lines between the Broadway and University stations, RTD said.

Bus shuttles were put in place to move passengers between the Broadway, Louisiana and University stations, but many said they ended up behind schedule.

Passengers on a train that got stuck had to walk onto another train that returned to the Louisiana and Pearl station.

At 10:30 a.m., RTD said some trains have started moving again but are very delayed.
