If you're talking about the Orange Line, over a year. Not too long after the 2005 grand opening of the busway that travels 14 miles across the San Fernando Valley, some pavement was found to be already rutting. Metro said the contractor did a subpar job, the contractor said Metro was running more buses than estimated, therefore damaging the pavement earlier than expected. But in the end, they came to an agreement to split the costs, according to the Daily News. For eight to ten weeks starting today, crews will work on fixing two segments in two different spots in two phases delaying buses a couple minutes.
