SALT LAKE CITY - Three downtown TRAX stations will be closed for several weeks to connect the new Airport TRAX line to the existing system.

The Planetarium, Old Greek Town and Salt Lake Central Stations will be closed between Saturday, May 5, through Wednesday, May 23.

UTA will have a bus shuttle to take passengers to and from the Salt Lake Central Station and downtown's central business district.

For the duration of the closure, TRAX trains will stop at the intersection of 400 West and South Temple, just west of the Arena Station. FrontRunner and buses that travel to the Salt Lake Central Station will continue to operate as usual.

The bus shuttle will operate on a 15-minute frequency Monday through Saturday from 5:25 a.m. to 11:45 p.m., and a 30-minute frequency on Sundays from 9:30 a.m. to 10:15 p.m.
