The Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority will be running bus shuttles as crews replace tracks along North First Street between Gish Road and St. James Street in San Jose for Labor Day weekend.
VTA officials said the tracks in the affected zone have been cited as "aging infrastructure" and are labeled a "slow zone". The weekend repairs will allow trains to travel at normal speeds.
VTA's green, blue and yellow lines run through the portion that will be closed to rail traffic. The bus shuttles started today with the first train of the day and will end with the final train on Monday night. In addition to the shuttles, VTA buses and light-rail vehicles will run on a holiday schedule on Monday.
VTA officials said residents and businesses in the area may hear noise because of around-the-clock construction work and concrete removal.
