Crenshaw/LAX Line motion to be considered by Metro Board in May

A key item concerning the Crewshaw/LAX Line on today’s Metro Board of Directors meeting agenda has been postponed until next month: a motion by Board Member Mark Ridley-Thomas to add a Leimert Park station and have tracks between 48th and 59th Street built underground.

Here’s a post from yesterday with more information on the motion. And here’s a link to an L.A. Times editorial that ran this morning opining that adding the underground segment to the project is expensive and unnecessary and that perhaps a planned station at Crenshaw and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard could be moved closer to Leimert Park.

    • Hi Dennis;

      The item is now scheduled to be considered at the May meeting. It is not “withdrawn” in the most literal sense.
