The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LA Metro) will close two Expo Line stations this week as crews begin construction on the Blue Line improvement project's northern segment. 

The 7th Street/Metro Center and Pico stations will close June 22 and reopen August 21 so that crews can replace shared track at the junction of the Expo and Blue lines at Washington Boulevard and Flower Street in the 7th Street/Metro Center tunnel in downtown Los Angeles, LA Metro officials said in a press release.

The Blue Line is undergoing an eight month, $350-million modernization that began in January. 

The project's southern section was completed June 1 and marked the total project's halfway point. The northern segment — from Compton Station to 7th St/Metro Center — is expected to reopen in fall.
