HOUSTON Power was restored and service resumed on the Metro Main Street/Red Line Light Rail system after an hour-long outage Wednesday afternoon.

The power went out around 1:40 p.m. when scaffolding equipment from a bridge construction area fell on the rail power grid at Fannin and Bellows, near Texas Children s Hospital.

Metro police assisted patrons who were stuck along the rail line, and transit officials established a bus bridge to keep commuters moving.
