As work on the Expo Line continues, Culver City and La Cienega/Jefferson Stations will be closed due to maintenance work in this area in preparation for the future opening of Expo Phase 2 in 2016.

Starting Friday, August 28th until Monday, August 31st, these two stations will be closed from 9PM until 4:30AM only.

In place of train service, bus shuttles will be available with stops between Culver City and La Cienega/Jefferson Stations.

Train service will continue between La Cienega/Jefferson Station and downtown Los Angeles.

  • Ten new stations, three of which are aerial
  • New public artworks at stations
  • 5.9 miles of new bike lanes
