Service on the Metro D (Purple) Line subway will be disrupted beginning Monday and continuing for 30 days to accommodate work on the extension of the line.

According to Metro, the D Line will operate only between the Wilshire/Western and Wilshire/Vermont stations beginning Monday, with trains running every 20 minutes.

People who normally take the D Line to or from downtown Los Angeles will have to use the B (Red) Line instead, transferring at the Wilshire/Vermont station. B Line trains will run every 10 minutes during midday hours, and every 20 minutes in the early morning and late evening hours, according to Metro.

According to Metro, crews will be working to connect existing D Line stations to the extension, which will ultimately stretch the line to the Westwood/Brentwood area. The first segment of the extension is scheduled to open next year, reaching Wilshire and La Cienega boulevards on the east end of Beverly Hills. That segment will also include new stations at Wilshire/La Brea and Wilshire/Fairfax.

In 2025, the extension is scheduled to open to Century City, with the full extension to the VA Medical Center campus near Brentwood set for 2027.
