Sound Transit’s north- and southbound 1 Line light-rail train service has resumed after being shut down between Rainier Beach Station and Tukwila International Boulevard Station.

At about 11 p.m. Saturday, a car hit a utility pole on South Norfolk Street near the light-rail line, according to Sound Transit spokesperson John Gallagher.

The Seattle Fire Department requested the agency stop service Saturday night so Seattle City Light could assemble a team to remove the pole. A light-rail car was not involved in the collision, but firefighters deemed the utility pole “close enough to the alignment that it was a hazard,” Gallagher said.

Light rail service resumed around 3 p.m., according to Sound Transit.

The agency had provided Link Shuttle buses to bridge the closed section of the line while repairs were underway.
