  1. I was always wondering the same thing, it would be nice to have an article explaining what it is exactly that is causing the delays and the shutdown on this portion beside “Expo Work.” Are they tying in the Wires? Is there a problem with the new junction? Is there prep work for the Expo Line Testing? These are the things we would like to know and at least for myself. Love to read about on The Source.

  2. It seems like I continue to hear this tying in of the Expo Line to the Blue Line construction work and related. How long does this take? What exactly are they doing that requires so much work??? Come on guys, this shouldn’t take THAT long to do.
