Three pretty good new pics of the working taking place under Wilshire to excavate the future Wilshire/La Brea Station for the Purple Line Extension. The first segment of the project is under construction and will stretch the Purple Line subway from its current terminus at Wilshire/Western for 3.9 miles with new stations at Wilshire/La Brea, Wilshire/Fairfax and Wilshire/La Cienega.
Here’s the project home page on metro.net. The target date to have this phase of the subway in service is late 2023. The project is funded by Measure R and a federal grant. Federal funding is being secured for the second phase to Century City and the recently voter-approved Measure M will help accelerate the third phase to Westwood with a target opening date of 2024-26.
