Blue Line Service in Long Beach Impacted by Tree Trimming This Weekend
2011-07-21 · By Editor
Metro Blue Line service in the Long Beach area along Long Beach Boulevard between 1st Street and Willow Street will not operate between 9 p.m. Friday, July 22 and 4 a.m. Monday July 25 due to City of Long Beach tree trimming maintenance work.
Metro will run bus shuttle service between the Willow Street, Pacific Coast Highway (PCH), Anaheim Street, 5th Street, 1st Street, Transit Mall and Pacific Avenue stations to provide Metro Blue Line patrons with access to those stations/locations.
Metro Blue Line service not operating along the Long Beach loop of the line will cause some service delays for patrons. Metro Blue Line service between Willow Street and downtown Los Angeles will run on regular schedule.
The City of Long Beach Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine will use a total of five tree trimming crews during the weekend working around the clock to complete the work with as little disruption as possible. The weekend work was scheduled during the weekend to lessen the impacts on commuters. Tree trimming work in the area is necessary for public safety and the safety of Metro Blue Line operations in the area.
