The LAMTA held a groundbreaking ceremony on 9/30/14 to unveil it’s Regional Connector. The 1.9 mile underground light rail will link the Blue, Expo and Gold Lines, making for more use of the light rails through downtown LA. It also eliminates the need for passengers to transfer between light rails at the 7th and Metro station. The line should be completed in 2020 and when it’s done Metro will run trains from Long Beach to Azusa and from Santa Monica to East Los Angeles. This is just one of three other MTA projects that are no under construction.
