Metro Blue Line service will be delayed about one minute from scheduled times from today until next weekend because of a vehicle accident on Thursday that damaged signal system equipment in Compton. A Blue Line train was not involved in the accident.
As a result, Blue Line trains are now making a full and complete stop at the Alondra Boulevard crossing until Metro can make full repairs the weekend of Dec. 18-20.
However, starting at 9 p.m. next Friday, Dec. 18, there are expected to be delays of six to 12 minute delays to Blue Line service as repairs are completed. Trains are expected to operate at slower speeds and stop at several street crossings in the area while equipment is replaced.
We’ll update the progress of the repairs next week on The Source.
