Metro line D (purple) service will be interrupted from Monday and will continue for 30 days to allow for line extension works.

According to Metro, line D will only operate between Wilshire/Western and Wilshire/Vermont stations from Monday, with trains running every 20 minutes.

People who normally take the D line to or from downtown Los Angeles will need to use the B (red) line instead, transferring at the Wilshire/Vermont station. Line B trains will run every 10 minutes at noon and every 20 minutes in the early morning and late evening, according to Metro.

According to Metro, crews will work to connect existing Line D stations to the extension, which will ultimately extend the line to the Westwood/Brentwood area. The first segment of the extension is slated to open next year, reaching Wilshire and La Cienega Boulevards to the eastern edge of Beverly Hills. This segment will also include new stations in Wilshire/La Brea and Wilshire/Fairfax.

In 2025, the expansion is expected to open in Century City, with the full expansion of the VA Medical Center campus near Brentwood scheduled for 2027.
