METRO is shutting down light rail service in the Texas Medical Center this weekend. The closure will allow Texas Children's Hospital to build a bridge. Part of Fannin will also be closed. METRO will run buses between light rail stations this weekend, which should run every 10 to 12 minutes.

The last trains will run around 8pm Friday. The rail line will reopen at 2pm Sunday.
