16-0151 gold line repairs_r2_HI-01

Track inspection and preventative repairs are scheduled to continue on the Pasadena Gold Line. During the week of July 26 to 31, midday repairs will be taking place between Del Mar and Allen stations from  Monday through Wednesday, then move between South Pasadena and Del Mar on Thursday and Friday.

Starting Monday, July 27 through Wednesday, July 29 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., trains will operate every 20 minutes along the entire line and share one track between Del Mar and Lake. On Thursday and Friday, July 30-31, Gold Line trains will operate every 15 minutes from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and share one track at South Pasadena and Fillmore.

(For specific departure times from Sierra Madre Villa, Union Station and Atlantic Station during maintenance, please see the Service Advisories Page.)

For those of you keeping track of the repair work, please take a look at the handy graphic above that shows which sections of the Gold Line have been completed, and which sections still require work. It’s estimated that another month or so is needed before repairs along the entire line will be complete.

With that being said, Metro would like to say thank you to all Gold Line customers who may have been impacted by the work. We appreciate your patience, and know that the end goal will be a more reliable and safe Gold Line. More updates on next week’s maintenance schedule can also be found here on Source.

    Thank them for what? Rather, Metro should appologize for any difficulty or inconvience.

  2. As usual it took years insted of months to build the line and just a few years after completion the MTA is already having to make repairs. I’ll bet the tracks buried in the streets throughout Los Angeles abandoned years ago are in better condition. And it didn’t take years to build each of those lines

  3. It does seem as if there have been pretty regular delays on the Gold Line. What’s up with that?
