Saw Cutting of Track Asphalt


As part of work on Metro’s New Blue Improvements Project, Metro’s contractor, Railworks, will be using large saws around station platforms and track drains where ‘ditch witching’ trenchers (a large machine used to dig trenches) will not have access.

This work will take place inside of the Metro-right-of-way at the following stations:

  • Pacific Coast Highway
  • Anaheim Street
  • 5th Street
  • 1st Street
  • Pacific Avenue
  • Downtown Long Beach


Traffic control will keep the public from entering the construction zones. Our contractor will comply with project safety requirements and will be using temporary lane closures to divert traffic and maintain as many traffic lanes open as possible. 

What to Expect

From 7:00am-3:30pm or 8:00pm-4:00am depending on track availability. Will not impact Blue Line service and all measures will be taken to reduce noise levels.
