L.A. Now Live: Discuss the new Expo Line extension

June 21, 2012 |  7:10 am

Times transportation reporter Ari Bloomekatz will join City Editor Shelby Grad for a live chat about the opening of the new Expo Line Culver City station.

The chat is scheduled for 9 a.m. Thursday.

Officials opened most of the $932-million first phase of the Expo Line in late April, providing 7.9 miles of light rail between downtown Los Angeles and the eastern edge of Culver City. But they did not open two stations on the route: Culver City and Farmdale, which they said were added further along in the project and needed more work.

The Farmdale stop also opened Wednesday and the Culver City station is the line's current western terminus, about 0.7 miles from the previous stop at La Cienega and Jefferson boulevards.
