Two-Week Partial Shutdown Of Metro Green Line Starts Friday
A section of Green Line rail service and several of its stations will be closed for two weeks starting Friday night.
The closures are part of Los Angeles Metro's Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project -- a $2 billion, 8.5-mile transit corridor project with eight stations proving service to several L.A. communities, including Crenshaw District, Westchester and the city of Inglewood.
The rail line and station closures start at 9 p.m. Friday and service will be out until 3 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 20, Metro said. Six of the line's 14 stations will be closed:
- El Segundo
- Redondo Beach
Metro officials noted that the Crenshaw Station will only be open for eastbound travel to Norwalk during those two weeks.
But riders can still get around the area on free shuttles, which will stop at each of the six affected stations and run on the rail line's normal schedule, according to the transit agency.
"We know growing pains can be tough, but in the end we'll have a bigger, more connected system," Metro spokeswoman Anna Chen said in a statement.
The Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project is slated for completion sometime this year.
