Repairs to the overhead power system at the Southwest Museum Gold Line Station will get underway after 9 p.m. this Friday and are expected to be completed by the close of service on Sunday night, well in advance of the Monday morning commute.
In the meantime, Metro buses will shuttle Gold Line passengers between Highland Park, Southwest Museum and Heritage Square stations during the time it takes to complete the maintenance.
The repair work will make it necessary to shut down the power for all three stations. Without the power system, Gold Line trains will not be able to operate in the affected segment.
Passengers will be asked to exit the train and take a waiting shuttle bus to the next operating station to continue their train trip. It’s a good idea to plan for an additional 20 to 40 minutes to get to where you’re going.
Normal train service will run between East Los Angeles and Heritage Square and between Highland Park and Pasadena.
