Looks like it all started last Thursday when the track was removed from service because protective netting above the platform fell and needed to be put back up after chunks of concrete fell and injured passengers. It was out of service again for Monday's rush hour. As we know, track 2 is the track in which long consists board. Tracks 18 and 20 tend to be the alternate tracks that are capable of berthing 11 car sets.
