Above is the route Metro buses and shuttles will use to serve Expo/Crenshaw Station for upcoming Crenshaw/LAX construction.

On Friday, November 7, construction will begin on the future Crenshaw/MLK Station, one of eight new stations that are part of the Crenshaw/LAX Line.

From November 7 to 24 and December 1 to 14, a portion of Crenshaw Boulevard (from Exposition to Rodeo Place) will be closed to all vehicular traffic with buses detouring via Arlington Avenue between Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. and Jefferson Blvd.

Pedestrians will have access to the sidewalks as businesses will stay open throughout the closure. Anticipated hours of construction work are 9 p.m. on Friday, November 7, through 6 a.m. November 24, then again from 6 a.m. December 1, through 6 a.m. December 14. There will be no closures during Thanksgiving weekend.

Metro will also provide free shuttle buses for customers who normally take Line 210, 710 and 740 to reach the Expo/Crenshaw station. Shuttles will run every 20 minutes, during Expo Line service hours, with additional stops at Crenshaw/Jefferson, 10th/Jefferson and Arlington Ave/Exposition.

Line 210, 710 and 740 passengers en route to Expo/Crenshaw Station can transfer to the shuttle bus at Arlington Avenue and Exposition Blvd. as shown on the map above. Customers also have the option of walking between Expo/Crenshaw and Jefferson/Crenshaw to board shuttles or Line 210, 710 and 740.

We will continue to update The Source on the Crenshaw Blvd closure as it progresses. For additional information, please visit www.metro.net/crenshaw or follow Metro on Twitter @metrolosangeles or @MetroLAalerts to get service advisories.

  1. You really should increase bus service frequency with this huge detour, the 210 line is already about the most deplorable and crowded bus lines in the MTA network.
