As we recently reported, Crenshaw, between Exposition and Coliseum, was closed through December 14 so crews could complete excavation and decking work for the Crenshaw/LAX station. As a result of rain-related construction delays, Metro has announced one more week of full-on road closures on and around Crenshaw Boulevard and Exposition. Those closures will take place after the holidays – from 9pm Sunday, January 4 through 6am Monday, January 12. See more details here

Once all this work is completed, traffic will be able to drive through the area while Metro construction goes on below.

According to Metro’s blog ‘The Source’:

Construction of the 8.5-mile Crenshaw/LAX Line began earlier this year with completion currently forecast for 2019. The project is largely funded by Measure R, the half-cent sales tax increase approved by Los Angeles County voters in 2008.

The new line will run between the Expo Line in the north and the Green Line in the south. In addition to serving Crenshaw Boulevard, the project will include two stations near Los Angeles International Airport, including a station at Aviation/96th where riders will be able to transfer to an Automated People Mover that will provide a quick ride to airport terminals.
