METRO rail is advising passengers to make alternative travel plans this weekend. Service will be shut down from 8pm tonight until midnight Sunday. The closure will allow crews to work on a pedestrian bridge for Texas Children's Hospital over Fannin Street. METRO buses will still be running in the area, so if you need to get around, check the schedule.

There is also another METRO rail closure scheduled for the weekend of December 17.
