After 10 weeks of rerouting buses to congested streets while some sections of Metro's Orange Line were being repaved, service is now back to normal operation, Metro said today in a statement. The repaving was needed to improve strength and durability of the roadway because soon after its October 2005 opening, the pavement began to rut. Metro blamed the contractor, the contractor blamed Metro and they finally settled to split the costs of the $1.5 million project. " am an enthusiastic supporter of the Busway and ride it regularly, but this is just bureaucratic and institutional stupidity," opined Andrew at Here in Van Nuys.
