LA Metro Green Line opens back up this Sunday
Posted by 081552 on Wednesday, March 28, 2018 12:50 PM

Great news for Green Line riders: work on connecting the Crenshaw/LAX Line and the Green Line tracks will be completed nearly one week earlier than scheduled. As a result, the five Green Line stations that had been closed since January (Aviation/LAX, Mariposa, El Segundo, Douglas and Redondo Beach) will reopen at the beginning of service on Sunday, April 1, and bus shuttles will no longer be running.

While work was being conducted on the rail junction between the Crenshaw/LAX Line and the Green Line, Metro used the closure to make track and signal upgrades to the Green Line to help ensure a smoother and more reliable commute.

Along with the reopening of the five Green Line stations, the LAX Shuttle G bus will no longer operate from Hawthorne/Lennox Station. The shuttle will return to its usual stop at Aviation/LAX Station. If connecting to other bus service — such as Culver City Bus — please check their current schedules.

The 8.5-mile Crenshaw/LAX Line is being built between the Expo Line and Green Line and will serve the Crenshaw Boulevard corridor, Leimert Park, Park Mesa Heights, Inglewood, Westchester and the LAX area. The project is scheduled to open in fall 2019.

Metro would like to thank all Green Line riders for their patience while the work was done!

It is good to see proper construction management can finish a  project on time or in this case early.

The date on the picture is not known.  Has the CAT on the connection Junction been completed ?  Otherwise a work window to install ?
