Just in time for the Monday morning commute, the Blue Line powers up for the start of service this morning at 4 a.m. Downtown Blue Line stations — Washington, Grand, Pico/Chick Hearn, 7th Metro Center — were closed to allow for construction of the Expo light rail line. Rail service from Long Beach Transit Mall to Washington Station was not affected. A bus bridge was established to shuttle passengers to Red, Purple, and Gold Line connections.
