A temporary suspension of service to some Metro C Line stations to complete system upgrades will begin Thursday.

Service between the Lakewood Boulevard and Vermont/Athens stations will be suspended from 9 a.m. Thursday through Saturday, Metro announced Wednesday.

Metro will provide free bus shuttle service at its Lakewood Boulevard, Long Beach Boulevard, Willowbrook/Rosa Parks, Avalon, Harbor Freeway and Vermont/Athens stations.

The C Line will be in regular service between the Norwalk and Lakewood Boulevard stations as well as between the Vermont/Athens and Redondo Beach stations during the work.

The A Line at the Willowbrook/Rosa Parks station and the J Line at the Harbor Freeway station will still be accessible throughout the upgrade.

The scheduled work consists of replacing an obsolete signal system with a new system that will help improve reliability and reduce delays to the train service, according to Metro.
