Construction Officially Begins Today on Phase 2 of Expo Line

Today, your donation to LAist will be matched dollar for dollar. Your tax-deductible that gift powers our reporters and keeps us independent will be felt twice as strong today, so don't delay!

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?
