PHOENIX — Passengers travelling through Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport might come across some delays: the Sky Train will face restrictions over the next several months.

Through April 8, the Sky Train will have evening and overnight restrictions due to an ongoing maintenance project. They will be in place Mondays through Fridays from 5:30 p.m. to 4 a.m.

The restrictions will impact service between the East Economy and 44th Street stations, according to airport spokeswoman Heather Lissner.

Lissner said riders boarding the Sky Train at the 44th Street station will ride the train to the East Economy station before switching trains to access the terminals.

For riders travelling from Terminals 3 and 4, they will need to switch trains at the East Economy station to get to 44th Street.

These delays will not effect a small group of people: the Sky Train reached its 10-million passenger mark in 2015. According to airport spokeswoman Julie Rodriguez, an estimated 14,500 travelers used the train per day in 2015.
