Rider Alert: Temporary Green Line Station Closures

Green Line rail service will be suspended between Crenshaw Station and Redondo Beach Station beginning at 9 pm, Friday, January 4, 2019, through 3 am, Sunday, January 20, 2019.


The Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project is laying the foundation and making connections for the future. In order to make the necessary connections between the Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project and the Green Line, we will need to suspend rail service between the Crenshaw Station and Redondo Beach Station.

The work will:

  • Activate the rail connection between the Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project and the Green Line to make them functional;
  • Begin testing trains between the two lines;
  • Serve as a milestone for the Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project
  • Keep Crenshaw Station Open for eastbound Green Line service only
