Just Another Day In SouthLA
Thanks to the Obama Administration, the Crenshaw Light Transit Rail has been cleared to begin purchasing land, metro rail cars and clearing utilities to make way for the $1.72 billion, 8.5 mile rail set to connect the Expo Line to the Green Line at the Aviation station. The Crenshaw Line received its final approval by the Federal Transit Administration, ruling Metro’s environmental impact report for the project officially in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act. It also makes the project eligible for federal funding.
The Crenshaw Line will be the first to connect a major population center of South Los Angeles to the rest of Metro’s rail network servicing Downtown Inglewood, Leimert Park, Crenshaw District, Baldwin Hills, View Park, Windsor Hills, Ladera Heights, Jefferson Park, Hyde Park, Westchester, Hawthorne, and LAX, however, the decision to put a stop under Leimert Park is still unclear.
