In order for the Expo Line contractor to install rail across 11th Street in Santa Monica, there will be a full street closure at the intersection of 11th and Colorado starting 5 am Monday, Dec. 9.

The continuous seven-day closure means 11th Street will be closed to northbound and southbound traffic at the Expo Line crossing on Colorado Avenue, and left turns onto Colorado Avenue will be prohibited.

Westbound and eastbound Colorado Avenue will remain open. Local access in the closure areas will be maintained at all times.
