Weekend Blue Line Closures CANCELLED For Long Beach Pride!

Supervisor Hahn intervened to ensure easy access to Long Beach Pride

Long Beach, CA—Today, LA County Supervisor Janice Hahn announced that Metro will reschedule the planned closure of two Blue Line stations originally scheduled to take place this weekend.  Supervisor Hahn had asked Metro to reconsider the timing of the maintenance, concerned that the closures would interfere with transportation to and from Long Beach Pride this Saturday and Sunday, May 19-20, 2018.

“I want to thank Metro for reconsidering their plans to close Blue Line stations this weekend,” said LA County Supervisor Janice Hahn. “Long Beach Pride is one of the biggest events of the year and thousands of people from across the County will rely on the Blue Line to get to and from the festivities.”

Until this morning, Metro had planned to do track maintenance requiring the closure of the Willowbrook/Rosa Parks and Compton Stations starting Friday, May 18th at 9pm through Monday, May 21st ending at 4am.

“If you are heading to Pride this weekend–  skip the hassle of parking, leave your car at home and take Metro!” said Supervisor Hahn. “Stay safe, have fun, and I will see you at Pride!”

Supervisor Hahn and her staff will participate in this weekend’s parade
