Maps: What to Know About Metro Blue Line and Expo Line Station Closures

The closure is part of a continuing upgrade project on the Metro Blue Line, with which the Expo Line shares the Pico and Seventh/Metro stations.

Renovation work on the Metro Blue Line will spill over to the Expo Line Saturday, when a downtown stretch of the line is halted for two months.

Beginning Saturday, downtown-bound Expo Line trains will terminate at the LATTC/Ortho Institute station, and passengers will have to use bus shuttles to access the Pico and Seventh/Metro stations. Passengers looking to take the Expo Line from downtown toward Santa Monica will have to board the trains at the LATTC/Ortho Institute station.
