WRITTEN BY :   Eric Pierce

DOWNEY – Effective Monday, DowneyLink is temporarily suspending service to three stops near Wildnerness Park on its northeast route.

The suspension of service is due to the I-5 freeway expansion project at Florence Avenue, which is expected to last 18-24 months.

The three stops where service will be suspended are at Little Lake/Wilderness Park, Cecilia Avenue at Liebacher Avenue, and Studebaker Road at Dollison Drive.

The remainder of the northeast route will not be impacted.

For more information, call DowneyLink at (562) 529-5465 or the Parks and Recreation Department at (562) 904-7238.

The Caltrans project is expected to increase traffic congestion around the 605 and 5 freeways at Firestone Boulevard, city officials said.
