  1. Allen is in the middle of the 210 with stations on both sides also in the middle of the freeway. Did a truck break through and damage something? Did a branch fall on it? Or did the poorly constructed system fail during weather that is foreseeable in the area?

    • The “Blue Line” will never be in service. The “A” Line will on Nov 2. That is what The Source has been saying for a while.

  2. Yet again, metro gives no information as to WHAT CAUSED this to happen. Business as usual I guess…
