Eyes on the Street: Crenshaw Construction Near LAX
Folks who live, work or shop along Crenshaw Boulevard or who attend tunnel breakthrough celebrations are no doubt aware that Construction for Metro’s Crenshaw/LAX line is well underway. At the Purple Line press event earlier this week, Metro CEO Phil Washington mentioned that Crenshaw is 60 percent complete. The 8.5-mile light rail line is expected to open in 2019.
Readers can get a sense for the project by viewing the excellent L.A. Trade Tech student visualization video above. The video goes north to south so the Green Line connection is at the very end.
Keen-eyed Metro rail riders can get a glimpse of the southern tip of the Crenshaw/LAX line under construction by looking north from the Green Line at and immediately west of the Aviation Station. Crews are at work building the wye where Crenshaw meets the Green Line.
