The Metro Gold Line will be closed between Sierra Madre Villa Station and Allen Station this Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 18 – 19. Bus shuttles will replace train service between the two stations.
Trains will operate normal service between Atlantic Station and Allen Station on this weekend.
During the closure, crews will be working to tie the existing Gold Line to the Gold Line Foothill Extension. Most of the work involves building and/or reworking the overhead wires and infrastructure that delivers electricity to light rail trains.
All work is subject to weather postponements. Get the latest alerts and news by following Metro on Twitter @metrolosangeles or @metroLAalerts.

wait so if they are connecting power line stuff did they lay the tracks to connect it to the bridge over the 210 yet?
Hey, not sure if the tracks are all in yet, but much of the work also involves adjusting existing infrastructure so that when the time comes it will be a smooth transition to connect to new tracks.
