Downtown LA Street Closures
Street restoration for the Regional Connector Transit Project continues as Metro builds three new underground stations in downtown Los Angeles. When completed in 2022, the underground light rail system will allow continuous travel between Azusa and Long Beach, and between East Los Angeles and Santa Monica, connecting Metro L, E and A Lines (Gold, Expo and Blue) with a one-seat ride.
