Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

We think we can, we think we can: The Expo Line's Phase 2, which extends light rail transportation from Culver City to Santa Monica, is going to happen, and things are getting going this morning. A groundbreaking event is being held to officially mark the beginning of construction on the project.

Phase 1 of the line, which starts alongside the Blue Line at Pico in Downtown, is currently under construction. Phase 2 is expected to open in 2015. Just don't call it the Aqua Line, you dig?
