Metro opens Green Line extension one week early


The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) announced today that the five Green Line stations that have been temporarily closed to connect the line with the future Crenshaw/LAX light-rail line will reopen a week early than expected

The stations that will reopen are Aviation/LAX, Mariposa, El Segundo, Douglas and Redondo Beach. The work was completed in 65 days, six days ahead of schedule. Metro will welcome back Green Line riders during the morning rush hour on Monday, April 2, with small tokens of appreciation at the five previously closed stations.

“Connecting the Green Line with the Crenshaw/LAX Line marks another big step in the expansion of Metro’s transit network,” Los Angeles Mayor and Metro Board Chair Eric Garcetti said in a press release. “I thank all our Green Line riders for their patience as we completed this critical work to improve transit in Los Angeles.”
