If you’re traveling by light rail this weekend, you might need to allow yourself some extra time. The RTD is shutting down the E Line between Southmoor and Lincoln stations and H Line between Southmoor and Nine Mile stations for wire repairs.

The E and H lines run parallel from downtown Denver to Belleview Station at the Denver Tech Center, where the E Lines continues southeast to Lone Tree and the E Line heads east to Aurora.

Here’s the affected section:
