Train service will resume on the Blue Line between Downtown Long Beach and Compton Station on June 1. Shuttles will replace trains between Compton and 7th St/Metro Center starting June 1 thru September.
Here are the details:
• Blue Line Northern Segment stations will be out of service starting June 1 through September 2019 (between Compton Station and 7th St/Metro Center).
• The Blue Line at Willowbrook/Rosa Parks Station will be out of service through September 2019.
• The Green Line at Willowbrook/Rosa Parks will remain in service.
• Two stations on the Expo Line will be out of service from June 22 through August 2019 (Pico Station and 7th St/Metro Center).
• The Red and Purple Lines will continue to run regular service and serve 7th St/Metro Center.
Metro will provide three levels of bus shuttle service to replace Blue Line service during this closure.

To improve service reliability and move more people through the urban center, Metro and LADOT are implementing an evening peak, temporary bus-only lane on southbound Flower St., between 7th St. and 28th St./I-110 Freeway entrance. The bus lane pilot project will be in effect Monday through Friday, from 3 to 7 pm, starting May 31 until the New Blue Improvements Project is completed.
The New Blue Improvements Project aims to bring the Blue Line — Metro’s oldest light rail line and historically its busiest — up to the modern specifications of our newer rail lines. The idea is to reduce the number of delays and make the Blue Line far more reliable than it has been in recent years. Upgrades include an updated overhead power system, general station improvements, new train control bungalows, new digital customer information panels and more.
