LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Metro announced today that it will suspend Green Line service between the Crenshaw and Redondo Beach stations for two consecutive weeks beginning Jan. 4 to complete and activate the connection with the future Crenshaw/LAX light rail line. 

The work is scheduled to be completed by Jan. 20. The following stations will not have rail service: Hawthorne/Lennox, Aviation/LAX, Mariposa, El Segundo, Douglas and Redondo Beach. Metro bus shuttles will replace rail service between the Crenshaw station and Redondo Beach station and all stations in between. Regular Green Line service will remain in effect between the Norwalk and Crenshaw stations, where passengers will transfer to buses to continue their trip, according to Metro. 

Shuttle buses are scheduled to run every six minutes during weekday peak periods and every 15 minutes during midday hours and weekends. The transit agency recommends that passengers allow extra time for their commutes. Metro staff will be on hand to assist riders at all Green Line stations where bus shuttles will be running. For those traveling to Los Angeles International Airport , the LAX Shuttle G will operate from its usual stop at the Aviation/LAX Station, which will be reachable via the bus shuttles. Other transit options to LAX include Metro Bus Lines 102, 111, 117 or 232. 

The LAX City Bus Center is also served by Beach Cities Transit 109, Torrance Transit 8, Culver City 6, Rapid 6 and Big Blue Bus 3, Rapid 3. Upon arrival at the LAX City Bus Center, transfer to the free LAX Shuttle which serves all airline terminals. The 8.5-mile Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project is a $2.058-billion light rail line that will run between the Expo and Green lines, with eight new stations serving the Crenshaw, Inglewood, Westchester and LAX communities. The Measure R-funded project is slated to open in mid-2020.
