EXPO Light Rail Project


Ready to move, Santa Monica?

Tired of sitting in traffic on the I-10?  Steady growth in the region is expected to increase traffic on the I-10 freeway and major east-west streets.  But by 2015, the EXPO Line will offer a great option for Santa Monicans to move around town gridlock-free, and get from here to Downtown LA in less than 50 minutes—even during rush hour!


Project Information

Currently EXPO is conducting exploratory work to plan upcoming construction activities.  Daytime road work on Colorado Avenue will continue in August, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday-Friday. Temporary lane closures may be necessary along the light rail route. One lane in each direction will be open at work sites. Traffic backups may occur - use alternate routes if possible. Parking meters will be taken out of service in the immediate area of the work.

August 8th - August 31st: Roadwork on Colorado between 4th Street and Lincoln and at the intersection of Stewart St and Exposition Blvd. Only one lane will be open in each direction. Where necessary for work zones, left-turns may be prohibited from/to Colorado Avenue.

Detour Information: Temporary lane closures may be necessary on Colorado Avenue between 4th St. and 17th St. and on the MTA Right of Way from 17th St to Centinela, including intersections of Olympic and 19th St., 20th St, Cloverfield Blvd., 26th St., and Stewart St.
