Metro buses will provide transportation service between Washington Station and 7th/Metro Center and will stop at San Pedro, Grand, Pico and 7th/Metro Center stations. The Metro Red and Purple Lines will continue to run on a regular basis.
This is the first of eight planned station closures over the next four months to allow construction work for the Expo Line. Other closures will occur in January, February and March 2010.
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.
The work is being managed and performed by the Expo Line's design-build contractor FCI/Flour/Parsons (a joint venture).
