LA Metro Blue Line weekend service to be impacted by construction work

Written by 

Los Angeles Metro Blue Line passengers will experience travel delays of up to 40 minutes May 14-16 due to construction of the Expo light rail line, which will connect with the Metro Blue Line in downtown Los Angeles. Special Metro Bus service will parallel the train route during the construction work.

Work will begin at 9 p.m. on Friday and continue until Monday morning, May 17. Metro expects to have the Metro Blue Line service restored by Monday before rush hours between Washington and 7th St/Metro Center Stations.

The Expo Line is a new 8.5-mile light rail line under construction from downtown Los Angeles to Culver City. It will share tracks and two stations with the Metro Blue Line along the Flower Street portion of the alignment.
