Section 1 of the Metro Purple Line Extension Project will extend the subway 3.9 miles west along Wilshire Boulevard from the line’s Wilshire/Western terminus, creating three new subway stations at Wilshire/La Brea, Wilshire/Fairfax, and Wilshire/La Cienega. Officials held a groundbreaking ceremony at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in early November. Read earlier post here. Section one of the Purple Line Extension is expected to open in 2023.
