Part of the A (Blue) and E (Expo) Metro railway lines will be closed until the end of the service on Sunday, when crews carry out construction on the Regional Connector Transit Project.
The A-line will be closed at 7th / Metro, Pico, Grand / LATTC and San Pedro stations, and service will resume at Washington Station.
The e-line will be closed at the 7th / Metro and Pico stations, and service will resume at the LATTC / Ortho station.
The closure is repeated on the weekends of 12 November and 10 December.
Metro bus line 859 replaces the train connection at the stations, and metro buses are temporarily free to run due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Metro will also make staff available at the train platforms to guide guests to the nearest bus stops.
The Regional Connector Transit Project, which starts at Little Tokyo / Arts District and ends at Seventh Street / Metro Center, will provide the missing link in downtown Los Angeles by driving nearly two miles to provide a connection from the Metro L (Gold) Line, A (blue) line and E line.
The lines are expected to begin using the new tunnels through downtown LA by the end of 2022.
