Long Beach Boulevard or Long Beach/I-105 is a Los Angeles County Metro Rail freeway median station on the Green Line. It is located in the center median of Century Freeway at the interchange with Long Beach Boulevard in Lynwood, California. It is not necessarily named for the city of Long Beach, California (served by the Blue Line) as Metro Rail usually names most of their stations after the nearest major cross streets. In this case, the station, located in Lynwood, is named for Long Beach Boulevard which indeed travels down to Long Beach. The original name for this station was Long Beach Blvd/I-105 and it may still be used in some places.

Pacific Electric Service
Prior to the establishment of service on Metro Green Line, the location served as Lynwood depot, a station on the Pacific Electric's Santa Ana (Pacific Electric)West Santa Ana Branch. At some point after service was discontinued, the small mission revival station building was relocated to Lynwood Park to make way for the Century Freeway, where it still stands to this day. The 1917 depot, one of only several in the area which survived the devastating 1933 Long Beach earthquake, has been registered as a historic American building by the Library of Congress.
