Utah, March 2, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — FrontRunner riders are facing delays of up to 90 minutes system-wide due to a signal communication issue Monday morning.

Utah Transit Authority officials first tweeted at 9:20 a.m. that riders should expect delays of 15-20 minutes northbound from Lehi to Ogden and southbound from Lehi to Provo.

At 11:05 a.m., a follow-up tweet said delays of up to 75 minutes should be expected.

Then at 11:20 a.m., UTA tweeted: “Expect delays of up to 80 minutes system-wide due to a signal communication issue.”

A follow-up tweet an hour later said riders should expect delays exceeding 90 minutes system-wide.

“Customers are advised to use an alternate bus or TRAX route for their commute while we work to restore service,” the tweet said. “TRAX Blue Line is recommended for north-south travel through the Salt Lake Valley. Call 801-743-3882 for assistance finding an alternate route.”

Gephardt Daily will have more on this developing story as information is made available.
