Rail track work on the Metro Blue Line (Los Angeles to Long Beach) has been scheduled for Friday, March 30 through Sunday, April 1. The work will affect Metro Blue Line service between the Vernon, Washington and San Pedro stations in Los Angeles.
During the three-day period, Metro’s Wayside Track Department will be removing the former Union Pacific railroad crossing between East 25th Street and East Adams Boulevard.
Both north and south bound tracks will be out of service along this stretch of alignment between the three stations from 9 p.m., Friday March 30 through 9 p.m., Saturday, March 31.
Metro will provide a bus bridge, operating Metro Buses between the Vernon, Washington and San Pedro stations during this period. Patrons will need to disembark trains at either the San Pedro Station or the Vernon Stations, depending on the direction of travel, to complete their destination. Metro Blue Line patrons can expect delays during this time period and should plan their trip accordingly.
After 9 p.m. on Saturday, March 31, Metro Blue Line trains will operate on one track through the affected area the remainder of the night and continue through Sunday night and early Monday morning until the close of service at approximately 1 a.m.
The Metro Blue Line will resume full service on Monday, April 2.
