Exposition Transit Corridor, Phase 2 is extending the Metro Expo Line west to Santa Monica from the Culver City Station, running along the old Pacific Electric Exposition right-of-way to 4th St. and Colorado Av. in downtown Santa Monica.

The 6.6 mile second phase will connect Santa Monica by rail to Downtown LA, Pasadena, San Fernando Valley, South Bay, Long Beach and dozens of points in between. With seven new stations serving diverse LA neighborhoods such as Century City, West Los Angeles, and Santa Monica, the Metro Rail system will expand to 87 stations and over 93 miles of rail to destinations across L.A. County.

Major construction began in 2012 and is scheduled to be completed in 2015.  The Exposition Construction Authority awarded the design-build contract for Phase 2 to Skanska-Rados, Joint Venture in March 2011.

Metro is scheduled to begin train safety tests in late 2015, with a projected line opening in early 2016.

Phase 2 includes new stations at:

  • Palms
  • Westwood/Rancho Park
  • Expo/Sepulveda
  • Expo/Bundy
  • 26th St./Bergamot
  • 17th St./SMC
  • Downtown Santa Monica
