Nice photo from work done Monday at the bridge that will carry the Expo Line over National Boulevard in Palms. ExpoLine Fan has tons of construction pics on his Flickr page and updates it frequently for those who want very frequent updates on work on Phase 2 of the project between Culver City and Santa Monica.

About that bridge for the Expo Line

Just a quick heads up — I believe some erroneous info circulated in the media about this: The existing single-track railroad bridge over National Boulevard in the Palms area is not being demolished to make way for a wider Expo Line bridge.

The existing structure will be used along with a new Expo Line bridge built next to it. There was a bridge demolished — the old single-track bridge over Motor Avenue met the wrecking ball in July.
