Light Rail Route from Culver City to Santa Monica Chosen by Board
The Expo Construction Authority Board of Directors yesterday directed staff to pursue and study a route for the second phase of the Expo Line, which would go from Culver City to Santa Monica, according to StreetsblogLA. The approved route would continue along the existing Exposition right-of-way through before converging with Colorado Avenue where it will run towards the ocean and terminating near Santa Monica Place (check this map and follow most northward dotted lines).
53 people, either in support or in opposition, spoke during public comment in what was described as "a very animated meeting," by one Metro employee. Activist Damien Goodmon, who opposed parts of Phase 1 between downtown and Culver City, reportedly threatened to file a federal Environmental Justice lawsuit three weeks from today.
Once complete, the Expo Line will run between downtown and Santa Monica and possibly from as far as East LA if the regional connector is completed.
