A woman in her 50s died this afternoon after she was struck by a northbound Metro Blue Line train in Watts. The incident, which occurred at 1:20 p.m. is being investigated by Sheriff's Deputies. Trains were delayed by 15 minutes and are now running on schedule.

However, trains will be impacted this weekend as track for the Expo Line, which will run 8.5 miles between downtown and Culver City, is installed between the 7th/Metro Center and the Washington Station (buses will run between the two, also hitting stations between). The construction could delay service up to 40 minutes between tonight at 9 p.m. and Sunday evening.
