This Saturday, May 4, Metro Expo Line service will be shut down between 23rd Street Station and 7th St/Metro Center in downtown Los Angeles to replace a support pole damaged earlier this month.


Train service will run only between Culver City Station and 23rd Street Station beginning at 8 p.m. up until close of service. A bus bridge (shuttle bus service) will be implemented between 23rd Street Station and Grand Station (Metro Blue Line).

Traveling from 23rd Street Station to downtown, you will have to use the bus bridge and transfer at Grand Station to a downtown-bound Metro Blue Line train.

Wrong-way driver hit a support pole last week. The support pole was damaged on Thursday, April 4, when a wrong-way driver on Flower Street struck and knocked over one of the poles that helps support the overhead wires supplying power to trains.

What about the game? Those heading to the game three of the Kings/Blues series on the Expo Line may want to plan ahead as the bus bridge will be in effect when the game ends.
