VIDEO: Exploratory Soil Drilling Begins Along Crenshaw/LAX Transit Corridor That Will Generate 7,800 Jobs

Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas joined Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and community stakeholders to celebrate an important milestone in the $1.7 billion Crenshaw to Los Angeles International Airport Light Rail Project, the largest public works project ever in South Los Angeles.

Supervisor Ridley-Thomas said the beginning of exploratory soil drilling as part of the planning and environmental analysis is tangible evidence the 8.5-mile project is being built.

“This project has long been overdue,” Supervisor Ridley-Thomas said at a news conference in the Leimert Park area to inform residents and business owners about the drilling. “Since the Metro board approved light rail transit last December, real work is being done to move this project forward.”
