Watch the decking take place over the past couple months for the station that will serve Leimert Park and will be located at Crenshaw Boulevard and Vernon Avenue. This is one of three underground stations on the northern part of the project — the others are Expo/Crenshaw and Expo/Martin Luther King, Jr.
The Crenshaw/LAX Line is an 8.5-mile light rail line that will run between the Expo Line and the Green Line. It is funded primarily by Measure R, the half-cent sales tax increase approved by Los Angeles County voters in 2008. All construction notices are here. The project is forecast to be complete in 2019.
As part of a separate project, an additional station will be added at Aviation/96th that will allow passengers to transfer to and from a people mover being built by Los Angeles International Airport. The people mover will connect to three stations near airport terminals as well as a planned new ground transportation center and consolidated rental car facility.
