Rail Crossing Replacement on Long Beach Bl at Anaheim Street


As part of work on Metro’s New Blue Improvements Project, Metro’s contractor, RailWorks, will replace concrete railroad crossings and temporarily close the intersection along the Blue Line in Long Beach:

  • Anaheim Station at Long Beach Bl

This activity is anticipated to begin on Friday, March 15th at 9 pm (weather permitting) and last until Monday, March 18th, 2019 at 5 am at this intersection. This intersection is anticipated to be closed for the entirety of the work activity.


  • There will be a weekend-long closure of the intersection of Anaheim Street 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 the placement of large panels, will have the potential to create noise.

Noise monitors will be used onsite while construction activities are in progress.

Construction is a dynamic process and information is subject to change. Work activity is subject to weather conditions.
