The City of Los Angeles is launching the Bringing Back Broadway project which will reduce traffic by one lane in each direction on Broadway in Downtown LA for sidewalk improvements between 1st and 11th streets. To reduce bus congestion and ensure bus schedules are maintained, Metro moved the southbound buses on Lines 30/330 and 40 from Broadway to Spring St. Lines 45 and 745 will remain on Broadway in both directions. Once the streetscape plan is complete on Broadway, all northbound lines will have major stop changes. Consult a timetable or visit metro.net just prior to Sunday June 23 schedule changes.
