Next stop: a better Blue Line.
Major improvements beginning January for Metro’s oldest light rail line.
Work to modernize the Blue Line has been ongoing since 2014 with a series of safety and operational improvements. Metro will begin another round of significant construction and maintenance projects in January 2019. Through these improvements, Metro will invest $350 million to enhance safety, increase reliability and improve the customer experience.
These improvements will:
- Extend the service life of the Blue Line
- Improve reliability and resiliency
- Enhance safety
The nature of the work on the Blue Line will require portions of the line to be temporarily closed for two extended four-month closures beginning January 2019.
Metro has designed a Bus Shuttle Service Plan during these closures to provide customers with a variety of service options during the New Blue Improvements Project.
