Track construction is currently underway along Florence Avenue between West Boulevard and Centinela Avenue, near Edward Vincent Jr. Park a.k.a “Centinela Park.” In the photos above, ballast rocks are being distributed to help stabilize the rails. The ballast helps reduce vibrations released from the tracks and prevents weeds from growing and obstructing the rails.
The next phase of construction: bridge framing removal at Aviation/Century Station and tunneling expected to be completed by early April.
The 8.5-mile Crenshaw/LAX Line is a $2.058-billion light-rail line that will run between the Green Line and the Expo Line and have eight new stations to serve the Crenshaw, Inglewood and LAX communities. It is expected to open in late 2019.
