SALT LAKE CITY — Technical issues delayed north and southbound Frontrunner trains on Tuesday, according to Utah Transit Authority.
Delays began Monday evening about 5 p.m. and by 8 p.m. trains were seeing delays of up to one hour. As of 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, all issues had been resolved, UTA said.
TRAX lines were also delayed and a bus bridge from the Ballpark station to City Creek was in place as of 6:17 p.m. Tuesday because of a disabled train at the Gallivan station, UTA officials said on Twitter.

The bus bridge was for Blue and Green lines — Red lines were able to drive through the area with delays.
Malfunctioning crossing arms required a crossing protection to be in place at 10800 South, UTA officials said.
