Photos by Expo Line Fan

It is with a bit of sadness that we today post the final three photos of Expo Line Phase 2 construction from Expo Line Fan, who for the past few years has been faithfully chronicling the project’s construction from downtown to Santa Monica.

Expo Line Fan has taken a job back East, so this is it — but he promises to return for the Phase 2 opening.

Metro and the Expo Line Construction Authority wishes to thank Expo Line Fan for his interest in the project and for sharing his photos. Check out his website for many more construction pics.

    • Not a race! What’s important is that each project is well constructed. Please keep in mind, too, that the Foothill project is 11.5 miles compared to 6.6 for Expo Line and that the maintenance facility for Foothill is a very large campus. Both projects are making great progress.

    • Hi Erik;

      I’m not really sure what to make of your comment, but I’m guessing it’s some type of insult. Yes, I remain somewhat loyal to the place where I was born and lived for more than 20 years.

  1. Steve,

    I agree that safety is first. Having said that, it was extremely disappointing to see the expo line phase 1 delayed multiple times and than to run into problems during operation. Let’s be honest, phase 2 +1-2 years is more like it at Metro.

    • Hi Anthony;

      I believe another reader mentioned the tracks on Hawthorne the other day but I don’t believe I’ve got pics yet. If you live in the area and can shoot it, that would be great. I’m going to be out shooting today, but in other parts of town.
