Construction on the long anticipated Crenshaw-to-LAX rail line began on May 2 on a stretch of Crenshaw Boulevard between Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Stocker Street. These streets were closed to implement traffic rerouting, traffic re-striping and the placement of concrete barriers to separate the work area from the road.
The 8.5-mile Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project is a $2.058 billion-light rail that will connect Metro’s Expo and Green Lines with eight new stations. When the Crenshaw/LAX line opens to the public in 2019, passengers and customers will be able to travel to work, medical care, entertainment, shopping, school and other activities all over the entire Los Angeles region. It also will help revitalize the local and regional economy.
Two lanes of traffic in each direction will be open on Crenshaw Boulevard between MLK Boulevard and Stocker Street, during the majority of construction. Extensive information and updates on the progress of construction please see the Metro.net website: here
