As part of the ongoing work to upgrade and refurbish the Blue Line, a test demonstration of work on the rail tracks will take place in the downtown Long Beach area from Monday, June 9 through Friday, June 20. Regular train service will NOT be affected.
This work is being done as a test operation in preparation for the major work on the tracks to start later this year. The work includes lifting of the track, insertion of rubber boots and use of asphalt grinders. Residents or anyone traveling in the area near 8th Street and Pacific Avenue are asked to stay away for safety reasons.
Work activity is subject to weather conditions. Emergency access will be maintained. For more information on the Blue Line upgrades, visit metro.net/bluelineupgrades.
