Green Line Stations Out of Commission until April

Green Line stations between Hawthorne and Redondo Beach will be out of commission until April 7, 2018 (file photo).

Commuters who rely on the Metro Green Line between Hawthorne and Redondo Beach will have to make alternate travel plans for about 10 weeks beginning in late January as construction forces the closure of five rail stations.

According to Metro, the contractor building the Crenshaw/LAX line will begin making infrastructure connections between the new route and the Green Line. That work will force the closure of the Green Line’s Aviation/LAX, Mariposa, El Segundo, Douglas and Redondo Beach stations.

The work will begin at 9 p.m. Jan. 26, knocking out rail service on that stretch until 3 a.m. April 7, according to Metro.

Metro officials said a free bus shuttle will provide service to all of the affected stations between the Redondo Beach and the Hawthorne/Lennox stations. Los Angeles International Airport Shuttle G will be relocated during the closure to the Hawthorne/Lennox station, and it will not service the Aviation/LAX station, according to Metro.

The Crenshaw/LAX line will connect the Metro Expo Line at Crenshaw and Exposition boulevards to the Metro Green Line near the airport, traveling through Inglewood, El Segundo and Westchester. The $2 billion project is scheduled to be completed in 2019.
