EARLIER POST: The 7th Street/Metro Center Station in downtown Los Angeles is currently closed while the Los Angeles Sheriffs Department completes investigation of an unattended package. The station has been evacuated and will reopen once LASD gives the all clear.
Blue and Expo Line trains are currently turning back at Pico Station. To complete your trip into downtown, please consider the Metro Silver Line,Metro Local 81 or DASH F. A complete list of suggested alternatives during disruptions can be viewed here.
Red and Purple Line trains are currently traveling all the way through in both directions but bypassing 7th St/Metro. If you need to get from Pershing Square to Pico Station, consider walking to 7th/Metro and catching the bus, or try Line 30/330.
The area around 7th Street and Flower has been closed to make room for LASD vehicles.
