On Friday evening at 9 p.m. Metro will begin work on connecting the Crenshaw/LAX Line and the Green Line tracks. The work will require a 71-day closure of five Green Line stations: Redondo Beach, Douglas, El Segundo, Mariposa and Aviation/LAX Station.
Service will be maintained with free bus shuttles in place of Green Line service between Hawthorne/Lennox and Redondo Beach stations during the closure. Bus shuttles will stop at all stations and run as frequently as the Green Line. Metro staff will be on hand to lend assistance at all Green Line stations where bus shuttles are running.
For those planning to travel to LAX Airport during this period, the LAX Shuttle G bus will not operate from its usual stop at Aviation/LAX Station. The shuttle will instead pick up LAX travelers from Hawthorne/Lennox Station. See more alternate transit options to LAX at the bottom of the post.
In addition to work on the rail junction between the Crenshaw/LAX Line and the Green Line, Metro is using the closure to make track and signal upgrades to the Green Line as part of the agency’s State of Good Repair program.
The following bus lines provide alternative service to the LAX City Bus Center on 96th Street where riders can transfer to the LAX Shuttle C bus:
The LAX FlyAway bus is also a great option with pick up locations at Union Station, Hollywood, Long Beach, Van Nuys, Westwood and Orange Line’s Woodley Station.
Additionally, Metro Line 625 and Big Blue Bus Line 3/Rapid 3 will extend service to Hawthorne/Lennox Station while the Green Line closure is in effect.
