Century Blvd Closure For Crenshaw/LAX Line

Century-Aviation_Rendering_

First there was “Carmageddon” and then its son, “Jamzilla.” Now, Angelenos need to brace for the “Century Crunch”—when a portion of Century Boulevard will be closed to permit the demolition of a defunct railroad bridge at the intersection of Century and Aviation Boulevards near the Los Angeles International Airport.

Beginning at 9 p.m., July 25, the bridge will be torn down to make way for a new state-of-the art elevated transit station for the Crenshaw/LAX light-rail line that will connect the nearby Metro Green Line to the Expo Line in 2019. Demolition will continue for the next 57 hours, ending on July 28.

So prepare yourselves for inconvenience during the Century Crush weekend. The Century Bridge supports an old railroad freight track that hasn’t been used in years, but it’s too narrow, old and unsafe to be incorporated into our new light rail system.

Demolition will close a portion of Century Boulevard, a major artery leading into LAX during one of the busiest travel times of the year. But as with Carmageddon, we do have choices and we should make use of them for the sake of the people who must get to this area … and for ourselves.

Prepare for the traffic jam of the Century…..Get IT! LOL
