Upcoming construction closure: 19th Street at Expo Line intersection in Santa Monica



Above is the good word from the Expo Line Construction Authority, the agency building the six-mile project that will extend tracks from Culver City to downtown Santa Monica with seven new stations.

The project is funded mostly by Measure R, the half-cent sales tax increase approved by Los Angeles County voters in 2008. It is currently forecast to open in early 2016.

  1. Not a busy street, so no big deal. I’ve read that a week from tomorrow they’ll be closing 7th and Colorado for 10 days to install rails, so people might want to plan ahead for a detour there. I was driving down Colorado last week, and saw that the 17th St station is mostly up – it’s cool to see things starting to take shape.

    • Whoops, I looked back at the paper, and saw I got that totally wrong. The Daily Press says Friday the 12th during early morning hours; it’s the other closures further uptown that will take a week or so.
