Metro’s Little Tokyo/Arts District Station will soon go out of service as work is conducted on the Regional Connector Transit Project, authorities said Thursday.
On Oct. 24, Metro will begin a 22-month phase of construction to build the “tunnel box” that will allow the Regional Connector to continue northbound to Azusa, connecting with the L Line, formerly known as the Gold Line, the transit agency said in a statement.
To build the tunnel box, the Little Tokyo/Arts District Station will be permanently closed and demolished. A service interruption of the L Line will be in place for 22 months, affecting rail service travel east starting at Union Station, Little Tokyo/Arts District and Pico/Aliso Stations.
A free bus shuttle will service the three affected stations in both directions.
The bus shuttle, following the travel path of the L Line, will have stops at Union Station Patsaouras Plaza, Little Tokyo, Arts District and Boyle Heights.
Services from Union Station to Azusa and from Pico/Aliso Station to East LA will continue on their normal schedules.
