Temporary Service Suspension btwn Jefferson/USC-7th/Metro
As of 11:30pm Thursday, Metro Expo Line has been suspended between Jefferson/USC and 7th St/Metro Ctr due to major damage to an overhead power pole caused by an unrelated auto accident. This disruption is expected to continue into Friday due to the extent of the damage. Initial reports are the car sheared the pole foundation bolts and crews may not be able to put a pole up in time for Friday morning service due to the foundation not being salvageable.

- Bus shuttles will then serve Jefferson/USC, 23rd St and Pico
