Photos: LA Metro
Above are some photos taken over the last several weeks of work on the Crenshaw/LAX Line, the 8.5-mile light rail line with eight new stations that will run between the Expo Line and the Green Line. Metro is planning to open the project in the fall of 2019.
A later project will add a station at Aviation and 96th Street that will serve as the transfer point to the future LAX people mover that will have three stations serving airport passenger terminals. That station — also known as the Airport Metro Connector — will serve trains on the Crenshaw/LAX Line, the Green Line and many Metro and other muni buses.
The $2.058-billion project is funded mostly by Measure R, the half-cent sales tax increase approved by L.A. County voters in 2008.
