LA Metro Coming to the Crenshaw Corridor

The Crenshaw/LAX Line is an under construction mass-transit light rail line project to construct a new 8.5-mile light rail line through southwest Los Angeles. The line will run generally north-south and will connect the Crenshaw District and Leimert Park to Inglewood and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The line will be a part of the Los Angeles County Metro Rail System. When completed, it will run from Jefferson Park in the north to El Segundo in the south with a projected ridership of 16,000.

The project is being planned by Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro). The project has been given high priority by Metro in its long-range plan.  Metro began pre-construction in July 2012.  Heavy construction began in June 2014 and initial revenue service projected to begin by 2019.
