Utility Investigation at Division 20 Yard and 1st St Bridge

As part of the Federal government’s Coronavirus Guidance for America, transportation infrastructure is considered an “Essential Critical Infrastructure.” Additionally, transit capital projects are not subject to the State of California’s Stay at Home order, therefore Metro construction projects continue to progress.


Metro’s contractor, Regional Connector Constructors (RCC), will continue the investigation of underground utility lines within the Division 20 Yard and on 1st St between Mission Rd and Vignes St. Work will continue on Wednesday, September 2, 2020, for approximately two weeks. Anticipated work hours are 9 pm to 5 am at the 1st St Bridge. Within the Division 20 yard, work hours are anticipated from 7 am to 3:30 pm, Monday through Friday. Additional night work may be scheduled later for at the 1st St Bridge. A supplemental notice will be issued once work is scheduled.

What to Expect

  • Thru traffic will be maintained.
  • A lane reduction will be in place on westbound 1st St between Mission Rd and Vignes St. 
  • Access to all adjacent businesses will be maintained at all times.
  • Pedestrian access will be maintained outside of the work zone


  • A 22-month L (Gold) Line service interruption from Union Station, Little Tokyo/Arts District, and Pico/Aliso is anticipated to start Fall 2020. A replacement bus-service will be made available by Metro.


  • Activities include coring, excavation, surveying of existing underground utilities, and backfilling.
  • RCC will install conduit/cables for future maintenance of rail communications for the Regional Connector Project. This work is being done to maintain the L (Gold) Line in operation during a planned service interruption in Fall 2020.
