BALTIMORE - CSX has issued heat-related speed restrictions for two MARC train lines serving the Baltimore area Monday.
With a forecasted high near 93 degrees, the transportation company announced the restriction Monday afternoon. The restriction will last through 7 p.m. Monday, according to the Maryland Transit Administration.
Trains on both lines will travel at reduced speeds and delays of 5 to 15 minutes are possible.
Heat restrictions, or heat orders, reduce maximum speeds by 20 mph and are put in place by CSX when there are consistent temperatures of 85 degrees or higher or when a 25 degree swing in temperatures happens within 24 hours, according to the MTA website .
