As someone who has received a few parking tickets on the Westside, I can’t say I’m sad to see the West L.A. enforcement center go. Boo hoo!
Here’s the construction notice from the Expo Line Construction Authority that is building the Measure R-funded second phase between Culver City and Santa Monica:
As far as I know, the long pole for Phase 2 might well be the bridge over Venice Blvd, and I’m not sure it makes sense to open the line in stages from the Santa Monica end. And if it’s not going to be the bridge, it might be train availability: Metro currently has just enough light rail trains to run the current service and keep some spare for any contingencies, but any new service will require new trains, which are still being built.
It’s great to see work going on Expo 2. I ride the Expo Line every day and ridership keeps going up – today it was standing room only by the time we hit Crenshaw!
As far as I know, the Sepulveda parking structure will not replace any existing structures, but will be built on the surface parking lot.
Well with the progress to date and the way things are going More like Early to mid 2015 if not Sooner
Hi Expo Line Fan;
I don’t think sooner — a lot of work and testing to be done, but it’s great to see the progress on many fronts. Very important project obviously.

Don’t get too excited Steve – I believe it is being built on the LADOT West LA Parking Enforcement’s surface parking lot, without the building being demolished.
When will this station open? It would make a HUGE difference to my commute!
Will the second phase open in stages, or will we have to wait for the very last station to be complete before this one opens? (Please say this will open first!)
The second phase of the Expo Line is targeting a late 2015 opening. The plan is to open the entire line at once.
