Metro Still Won't Set Opening Date for Expo Line
Metro is still working on completing the Expo Line, but they still won't commit to any opening date for the light rail expansion. Why not?
There’s still parts of the project not yet finished, namely there’s work to be done on the switch on the junction of the Expo Line and Blue Line tracks, the ventilation system in the tunnel under Figueroa near USC and the Culver City station. Bottom line: Metro officials are adamant about not rushing to open the line until it is completed.
As we await the Expo Line's first phase to be completed and the "all aboard!" call to go out, Metro has already officially marked the start of construction on Phase 2, which will connect Culver City to Santa Monica. That portion of the line is slated to open in 2015.
