If your weekend work or play plans include riding the Blue Line in or out of Downtown, take note: Several stations will be closed this weekend due to construction. Stations affected are: 7th Street/Metro Center, Pico, Grand, San Pedro, and Washington.

Metro says Blue Line passengers will experience travel delays of up to 40 minutes from 9 p.m. tonight to early Monday morning (January 28, 29, 30 and 31) due to construction of the Expo light rail line, which will connect with the Metro Blue Line in downtown Los Angeles.

They will provide bus shuttle service between the Washington Station and the 7th Street/Metro Center Station. Rail service from Washington Station to Long Beach Transit Mall will not be affected. There also will be Metro personnel at Washington and 7th Street/Metro Center stations to help direct patrons.
