The Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project is an 8.5-mile light-rail line, with eight stations, including Leimert Park and Hindry. The rail line will run between the Expo Line on Exposition Bl and the Metro Green Line. It will consist of aerial (La Brea Av/ La Cienega Bl and 405 Freeway/ Century Bl) and below-grade segments (Exposition Bl to 48th St/59th Pl to 67th St/ Los Angeles International Airport South Runways) with all remaining areas at-grade.
The Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project will serve the Crenshaw District, Inglewood, Westchester and surrounding area with eight stations, at:
- Crenshaw/Martin Luther King
- Crenshaw/Vernon (Leimert Park)
- Florence/La Brea
In addition to the alternative transportation option to congested roadways, the project will also provide significant environmental benefits, economic development and employment opportunities throughout Los Angeles County.
The Crenshaw/LAX Project is one of 12 transit projects funded by Measure R, the half-cent sales tax approved by Los Angeles County voters in 2008.
Periodically, sections of Crenshaw Boulevard will be closed to all vehicular traffic due to construction on the Crenshaw/Expo underground station.
Buses will detour via Arlington Avenue between Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. and Jefferson Blvd. See the bus detour map here. Sidewalk access will remain open to pedestrians as businesses will stay open throughout the closure.
