Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn announced Tuesday that Metro will reschedule the closure of two Blue Line stations originally scheduled to take place this weekend.
Hahn had asked Metro to reconsider the timing of the maintenance since the closures would interfere with transportation to and from Long Beach Pride this Saturday and Sunday, May 19-20.
“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,” said Supervisor Hahn in a statement.
Until Tuesday morning, Metro had planned to do track maintenance requiring the closure of the Willowbrook/Rosa Parks and Compton Stations starting this Friday, officials said.
