SALT LAKE CITY -- Eastbound travel on the University TRAX line is moving again after a snapped power line was repaired.

The line snapped around 2 p.m. just east of Library Square as a train passed by.

It was fixed just before 5:30 p.m.

TRAX service between the Trolley Square stop (700 East) and the Gallivan Plaza was down for more than three hours.

UTA ran a bus bridge between the three affected stops.

It is unknown why the wire snapped.

Regular service on the North-South TRAX line and to Salt Lake Central station from Gallivan Plaza were unaffected.
