Damage to an overhead power supply wire near the San Pedro Station resulted in power loss to the southbound Blue Line track and both Expo Line tracks this morning.
As of 9:10 a.m. power has been restored to the southbound Expo Line track. A bus bridge is still in effect between 7th/Metro and 23rd Street Station for Expo Line riders. Trains are running approximately every 15 minutes from 23rd Street Station.
The southbound Blue Line track will be out of service until repairs are completed. Extra trains have been deployed on the northbound Blue Line track. Shuttle service is operating between 7th/Metro to Grand, Grand to Washington, and Washington to Long Beach Transit Mall to assist with moving passengers. Trains are running approximately every 25-30 minutes from Washington to Long Beach Transit Mall.
Repairs to the overhead wire will commence immediately after the train is moved.
Metro is expecting to restore full service prior to the PM rush hour.
