SALT LAKE CITY -- FrontRunner and Union Pacific Trains are once again moving north of Salt Lake City. A downed power line brought the commuter train to a standstill when it fell across the tracks.
The line fell Wednesday, shortly after 10 a.m. at approximately 2100 North.
The trains began moving again around 12:30 p.m.
The power line fell within a UDOT construction zone, but a UDOT spokesman says wind most likely knocked the line down.
UTA was busing passengers between Woods Cross and Salt Lake City while Rocky Mountain Power repaired the line.
"Anything even close to something dangerous, we stop service and will route our system around it," says UTA Spokesperson Carrie Bohnsack-Ware.
