Metro transit will temporarily suspend rail service on the C (Green) Line between the Lakewood and Vermont/Athens stations this weekend to upgrade signal systems, the agency announced Thursday, July 22.

The work is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. Friday and conclude at the end of service on Sunday.

Metro said it will provide free bus shuttle service to the affected stations — which include Lakewood, Long Beach, Willowbrook/Rosa Parks, Avalon, Harbor Freeway and Vermont/Athens.

The J (Silver) Line’s Harbor Freeway station will continue to be open and accessible.

On Friday, shuttle buses will run on the same schedule as trains. On Saturday and Sunday, they will run every 15 minutes from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m., and every 20 minutes at other times.

Metro recommended that passengers plan their commutes to allow for extra time.
