Aviation/LAX Station will be closed this weekend in order for crews to perform necessary tie-in work to the future Crenshaw/LAX Line. Starting Saturday, April 16 through Sunday, April 17 close, there will be no train service to Aviation/LAX Station. Free bus shuttles will replace Green Line trains between Mariposa and Hawthorne/Lennox.
This means all eastbound trains travel as far as Mariposa Station and return to Redondo Beach. All westbound trains travel as far as Hawthorne/Lennox and turn back to Norwalk Station.
Green Line trains are scheduled to run every 15 to 20 minutes throughout the weekend. (Please note the schedule may be subject to work-related delays.) On Friday evening, the last complete eastbound trips depart Redondo Beach at approximately 11:55, 12:15, 12:35, 1:18 and 1:38 a.m. The last complete westbound trips depart Norwalk at 12:10, 12:30, 12:50, 1:29 and 1:49 a.m. Normal service to all stations resumes Monday morning.
For those planning on using transit to get to LAX while work occurs, please allow extra travel time to connect with bus shuttles. The LAX FlyAway bus from Union Station or other locations is also a good option.
As many are aware, the tie-in work at Aviation/LAX this weekend is a part of the $2.058 billion Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project that will ultimately service the Crenshaw District, Inglewood, Westchester and surrounding areas with eight stations, running in between the Metro Green and Expo Line.
We recognize service disruptions can be a nuisance and we’d like to thank everyone affected for your patience and understanding. Metro personnel will be on hand and happy to assist customers at Mariposa, Aviation/LAX and Hawthorne/Lennox Station.
