To prepare for the $1.2B overhaul of the Blue Line, Metro will institute a 30-day closure of four major stations in Downtown Long Beach: Downtown Long Beach Station, Pacific Street Station, 1st Street Station and 5th Street Station.
The 30-day closure will begin September 20 and during the closure, free bus shuttles will be provided for those whose trips are disrupted. Shuttles will run at the same Blue Line service levels and will be scheduled to meet trains for transfers. At Anaheim Street Station, regular train service will continue northward to Los Angeles.
Work at the four stations will include installing new tile, lighting, paint and extending station canopies, as well as rail replacement.
