Can it really be? Expo line finally opens
It finally happened. After delayed and more delays, the Exposition Light Rail line in Los Angeles has finally opened.
The first public Expo Line passenger train was a sweep train departing from 7th/Metro at 4:54 am on Saturday, April 28, 2012.
I’ve written about the line three times before, and it was always about the never-ending delays.
9/19/2011 Expo line delays should not be tolerated
11/26/2001 Expo line to miss 2011 opening
3/24/2012 Endless Expo delays coming to an end…?
See a theme?
Originally scheduled for a summer 2010 opening, the line was delayed and delayed and delayed again. The mayor finally set in stone an April 29th opening, and it looks like that official announcement was enough to motivate the contractors to finally do their jobs.
