Regional Connector Constructors will permanently close the Little Tokyo/Arts District Station to build the underground tunnel box for the L Line (Gold) along Alameda St, between 1st St and the 101 Santa Ana Freeway. Lane reductions are expected on this stretch of Alameda St to allow for the safe demolition of the station and construction of the tunnel box.
