UPDATE: Cleanup and removal of debris from the L Line right-of-way has been completed. Trains will resume scheduled service between APU/Citrus College and Union Station; bus shuttles cancelled. Thank you for your patience!
L Line train service between Sierra Madre Villa and Allen Station is currently suspended due to a semi-trailer truck crash on the 210 freeway near Sierra Madre Villa that occurred at approximately 4:30 a.m.
The truck landed across the tracks. No trains were in the area at the time. The overturned truck has since been removed and crews are working to repair the rail right-of-way to allow train operations to safely resume.
Bus shuttles are in service between Sierra Madre Villa and Allen Stations. Trains will be running every 12 minutes between APU/Citrus College and Sierra Madre Villa Station and between Allen and Union Station through this evening. Please allow extra time to travel through the impacted area.
As some of you may know, this is not the first time a truck traveling the I-210 has crashed onto the L Line tracks.
Metro has been working with Caltrans to design new barriers that will enhance safety along this corridor. Metro intends to submit proposed designs for Caltrans’ approval later this year. Upon acceptance of these design proposals, Metro will seek construction funding while it completes the year-long design process — which will clear the way to begin installing new barriers.
