PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) — The outbound light rail tracks at Station Square Station will reopen for start of service Thursday.

The Port Authority announced today crews have completed replacing 1,600 feet of light rail track, 4,000 feet of overhead power lines less than three weeks after Norfolk Southern freight cars derailed from the tracks above the station.

Inbound T cars will be detoured on the Allentown spur as crews complete testing those tracks.
