As many of you are aware by now, the New Blue Improvements Project is currently underway. The south closure of the Blue Line will last through May, and the north closure is expected to take place from May through late July. And some of you may still be wondering: why will this project take so long?
As Metro’s oldest and busiest light rail line, the Blue Line has had its share of wear and tear, with mechanical issues becoming more prevalent in recent years. Knowing that, I thought it was important to take a look back at the history of the Blue Line and how we got to this point.
