'Minor' delays expected on Metro's Expo Line after auto accident

April 05, 2013|By Matt Stevens

Expo Line riders should expect minor delays near the 23rd Street station Friday after a vehicle struck a power pole in the area late Thursday, Metro announced on its website and Twitter account.

Officials said the vehicle may have sheared the pole's foundation bolts, causing delays and the use of bus shuttle service early Friday morning. At that time, service on the line had been suspended between the Jefferson/USC station and the 7th Street/Metro Center stop.

But around 4 a.m., Metro said emergency repairs had been completed and normal service would be restored to all stations with “minor” delays near 23rd Street “due to restricted speed from emergency repairs.”

The Expo Line connects the Westside to downtown Los Angeles and several other parts of the county.
