A new round testing of train signals and other electronics began Thursday for the second phase of the Expo Line between Culver City Station and Military Avenue. If you live, work or are visiting the West L.A. area please keep an eye out for test trains!
The above photos were taken Friday afternoon adjacent to the Westwood Boulevard Station, which is just a couple blocks south of Westside Pavilion.
The second phase of the Expo Line will extend the rail line from Culver City to downtown Santa Monica, with a station just steps from the Santa Monica Pier, Santa Monica Place, the Third Street Promenade and Tongva Park, among other attractions.
The project is expected to open in the first half of 2016; construction continues by the Expo Line Construction Authority while Metro has begun testing some aspects of Phase 2. The project is funded by Measure R, the half-cent sales tax increase approved by 68 percent of Los Angeles County voters in 2008.
