LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Metro transit will temporarily suspend rail service on the C (Green) Line between the Lakewood and Vermont/Athens stations beginning today to upgrade signal systems.
The work is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. Friday and conclude at the end of service on Sunday.
Metro said it will provide free bus shuttle service to the affected stations -- which include Lakewood, Long Beach, Willowbrook/Rosa Parks, Avalon, Harbor Freeway and Vermont/Athens.
The J (Silver) Line's Harbor Freeway station will continue to be open and accessible.
On Friday, shuttle buses will run on the same schedule as trains. On Saturday and Sunday, they will run every 15 minutes from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m., and every 20 minutes at other times.
Metro recommended that passengers plan their commutes to allow for extra time.
Regular C Line rail service will continue between Norwalk and Lakewood stations, where passengers will transfer to bus shuttles to continue their trips, and from Vermont/Athens to Redondo Beach stations, Metro said.
For those planning to go to Los Angeles International Airport, the LAX Shuttle G operated by Los Angeles World Airports will continue to run regular service from its usual stop at Aviation/LAX Station. Other options to LAX include Metro Lines 102, 111, 117 and 232.
