Metro's new tunnel connecting North Hollywood's Red Line and Orange Line stations is looking nearly complete. According to Metro spokesperson Dave Sotero, the project is anticipated to open next month. Per Metro [PDF] the tunnel will save riders approximately 44 seconds on transfers between the Red and Orange Lines.

The Red Line station's fare gates and fences have been reconfigured. The above-ground structures for the escalators and elevator seem nearly done. Riders who poke their heads around the construction fence can see that the tunnel itself, while still a construction site, appears almost ready for pedestrian traffic.

More photos after the jump.
