Metro Green Line temporary closure begins tonight through January 20

Green Line service will be suspended between Hawthorne/Lennox Station and Redondo Beach Station beginning at 9 p.m. tonight, through 3 a.m., Sunday, January 20, 2019.

The Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project is laying the foundation and making connections for the future. In order to make the necessary connections between the Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project and the Green Line, we will need to suspend rail service between the Hawthorne/Lennox Station and Redondo Beach Station.

The work and closure of the stations will allow the contractor to activate the rail connection between the Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project and the Green Line to make the junction functional. Shortly thereafter they will begin testing trains between the two lines. This will be another milestone for the Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project, and one step closer to improving our system wide connections.

Rail service will be suspended beginning at 9 pm, Friday, January 4, through 3 am, Sunday, January 20, 2019. The closure will be ongoing through 3 am, Sunday, January 20, 2019. The following six stations on the Green Line will be closed and rail service will be suspended:

  • Hawthorne/Lennox
  • Aviation/LAX
  • Mariposa
  • El Segundo
  • Douglas
  • Redondo Beach

NOTE: LAX G Shuttle stop will remain at its usual stop at Aviation/LAX Station.
Replacement Bus Shuttle Service (Line 853): A free Green Line bus shuttle will be provided to service all closed stations between the Crenshaw Station and the Redondo Beach Station during this time.
