Heads up Expo line patrons!  This weekend from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Expo Line will be running approximately every 20 minutes due to rail grinding and urgent track-work.

Here are the detours for the stations between Expo/La Brea and Expo/Western:

         Saturday, August 10, board on the westbound (to Culver City side) of the platform

         Sunday, August 11, board on the eastbound (to DTLA Side) of the platform

This will be especially critical at the stations with side/split platforms such as Farmdale, Expo/Crenshaw, and Expo/Western.  As a reminder, always check the destination head-sign of the train before boarding.

To plan the route that’s best for you, use the Metro Trip Planner.

    • Rail grinding is, simply put, smoothing out the track — means a smoother ride and less wear and tear for rail cars.

  1. By the way: I am hypothesizing that the future Palms/National Expo Line station will also have side/split platforms, one on either side of the bridges, due to the narrowness of the dual track overcrossings
