As part of work on Metro’s New Blue Improvements Project, Metro’s contractor, RailWorks, will replace concrete railroad crossings and temporarily close the intersections along the Blue Line at the following locations in Long Beach:
- 19th Street at Long Beach Bl
- 20th Street at Long Beach Bl
- Hill St at Long Beach Bl
This activity will begin on Monday, March 4 through Saturday, March 9, 2019, from 7am to 11:59pm daily for both intersections.
These intersections are anticipated to be closed for the entirety of the work activity.
This will be a closure of the intersections at 19th St at Long Beach Bl and 20th St at Long Beach Bl, and Hill St at Long Beach Bl.
Access will be maintained for those traveling northbound and southbound along Long Beach Bl, however they will not be able to make turns across the tracks.
Detour signage will be posted along Long Beach Bl.
What to Expect
Construction activities will involve the use of heavy equipment and small tools, in addition to placement of large panels, and will have potential to create noise.
Noise monitors will be used onsite while construction activities are in progress.
