The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway reopened this morning after damaged phone lines prompted the operator to close it Sunday.
The tram was closed yesterday so crews could fix the downed lines. The tram was operating normally today, and the lines were repaired. The first tram car is scheduled to go up at 10 a.m., tram spokeswoman Lena Zimmerschied said.
It was unclear how the lines fell, or if the downed lines were connected to an outage that occurred yesterday morning when a vehicle struck a power pole near Yorba Road east of Palm Canyon Drive. That outage affected 3,185 customers, and most had their power back in a few minutes, according to Southern California Edison.
