Concrete Railroad Crossing Replacement


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:

  • Broadway and Pacific Av
  • 6th St and Pacific Av
  • 7th St and Long Beach Bl

This activity will begin on Friday, February 22nd at 6:30 pm and last until Monday, February 25th, 2019 at 5 am for all three intersections. These intersections are anticipated to be closed for the entirety of the work activity.


There will be a weekend closure of the intersections at Broadway and 6th St and Pacific Av and 7th St, at Long Beach Bl.
Vehicles will continue to be able to drive northbound and southbound down Long Beach Bl and Pacific Av., however, they will not be able to make turns across the tracks.
Detour signage will be posted along Long Beach Bl. and Pacific Av.

What to Expect

  • Construction activities will involve the use of heavy equipment and small tools, in addition to the placement of large panels, and will have the potential to create noise.
  • Noise monitors will be used onsite while construction activities are in progress.
