The LAX shuttle that runs between the Aviation/LAX Station and the airport will continue on its regular schedule during the construction.

Crews will be conducting track maintenance and system improvements as part of the Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project, which will extend light-rail transit service about 8 1/2 miles from the E Line and merge it with the C line at the Aviation/LAX Station.

According to L.A. Metro’s website, the project is expected to be completed this year.
