News from the Expo line (re-posted from Expo-E-News-Spring-2011)
Expo Line Phase I Opening Soon!
The Exposition Construction Authority has turned the system over to Metro for pre-revenue service, which began in late January. Pre-revenue service is intended to simulate actual service with trains running on a regular schedule, but with no customers on board. Trains will be operating between the Expo Line terminus at 7th/Metro Center and the La Cienega/Jefferson station while work continues on the final station in Culver City. Once Metro decides that the system is safe to operate, they will determine the date for revenue service – and the line will open to the public.
Construction at the Culver City Station is still underway. Work crews are currently working on the installation of the station stairs, landscaping for the pedestrian plaza and grading for the temporary parking lot. Other elements that remain are the civil and street improvements near the station.
