Commuters who missed seeing the sign at the Chatsworth Train Station or the story in Patch were surprised Wednesday when they found the depot access road blocked by construction equipment.
The Old Depot Plaza Road entrance at Devonshire Street is being widened to allow buses to enter without swinging into opposing traffic lanes. Traffic will be restricted to the Lassen Street entrance during construction.
The roadway is scheduled to reopen on Jan. 14.
Metro buses that normally wait for passengers on Old Depot Plaza Road are now waiting on Devonshire Street.
All the parking lots remain open and operations of Metrolink, Amtrak and the Orange Line are not being affected by the closure.
