Planned utility work near parts of the Metro L (formerly Gold) Line will necessitate an interruption in rail service from Saturday night through early Monday morning between the APU/Citrus College Station and the Duarte/City of Hope Station, the transit agency announced Thursday.
Southern California Edison will conduct the work starting at 5 p.m. Saturday, according to Metro, which reported that regular service is scheduled to resume at 3 a.m. Monday.
Train service will continue to run from Duarte/City of Hope Station to the Atlantic Station. While the work is being done, all northbound trains will run as far as Duarte and turn back toward Union Station.
Due to the work, Metro will provide free shuttle buses to replace rail service in transporting passengers between each of the following four stations: APU/Citrus College, Azusa Downtown, Irwindale, and Duarte/City of Hope.
Passengers should follow the temporary signs for direction.
An existing, long-term shuttle bus service is in effect on the L line between Union Station and Pico/Aliso Station due to Regional Connector Project work.
As part of state, county and applicable city orders specific to the COVID-19 response, Metro-related work activities are currently included as “essential” activities.
