Purple Line: 9 more miles and 7 new stations to the Wilshire Corridor.

Heading east, the twin boring machines finished tunneling 2.1 miles from Wilshire/La Brea Station to Wilshire/Western station in August. They were delivered back to Wilshire/La Brea station and will now head West to Wilshire/Fairfax station (1.2 miles) and to Wilshire/La Cienega Station (0.7 miles) to complete phase one.

FACEbook Update


PHASE 1

Wilshire/La Brea Station

Quote:
September Newsletter: Soyeon and Elise are anticipated to relaunch in October 2019 and more! http://bit.ly/2UspoQO
Quote:
Crews continue to reassemble the twin tunnel boring machines, Elise and Soyeon, in the North La Brea Yard to prepare them for their next task: boring tunnels west to the Wilshire/Fairfax Station.
Quote:
Soyeon and Elise are anticipated to relaunch in October 2019. They will be excavating shorter tunnels this time because the distance between the Wilshire/La Brea and Wilshire/Fairfax stations totals only .8 miles or 4,224 feet, less than half the length of the Wilshire/La Brea to Wilshire/Western tunnels.
Quote:
Meanwhile, station construction continues at Wilshire/Farifax with concrete pours. Excavation will be nearly completed at Wilshire/La Cienega this month, which will signal the start of building the station below ground. In September, the contractor will begin receiving material and concrete deliveries into the station box, some of which will require lifting the deck panels along Wilshire Bl.
PHASE 2
Quote:
Work on key construction milestones starts this month for the Wilshire/Rodeo Station. …………………...
Later during the month, stakeholders will see the start of pile installation on the north side of Wilshire Bl between Beverly Dr and Crescent Dr. The piles will support the perimeter of the Wilshire/Rodeo Station box.

Current excavation progress for the Tunnel Boring Machine Launch Box in Century City.

PHASE 3
Quote:
Purple Line Section 3 continues pre-construction activities with advanced utility relocation, subsurface investigations, and surveys. Metro contractors are preparing for construction in the Caltrans yard and on U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Campus

As seen below, workers continue subsurface investigation in Section 3 to better understand soil conditions before tunneling begins.

I didn’t get a chance to take a picture, but the newly reopened Pico Station downtown has new signage incorporating the letter system: a dark blue “A” and light blue “E” — no wordmarks indicating Blue Line or Expo Line.

On the one hand, it’s exciting, but the timing is a little strange. Metro is just going to have to change the signs again when the Regional Connector opens to flip the “E” to gold, and change the destinations to East LA and Azusa. Why not wait until then to change the whole system at once? Isn’t this going to confuse more people than necessary?

LAX - CONRAC PRESS RELEASE

Quote:
LOS ANGELES — Mayor Eric Garcetti broke ground today on the Consolidated Rent-A-Car (ConRAC) facility at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), which will centralize rental car operations into one convenient location and offer a direct connection to the upcoming Automated People Mover (APM) train. The Mayor was joined at the ceremony by Councilmembers Mike Bonin and Joe Buscaino, Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, Board of Airport Commissioners (BOAC) President Sean Burton, and Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) CEO Deborah Flint, as well as community and labor leaders.
Quote:
The 5.3 million square foot ConRAC facility will feature 18,000 parking stalls with 6,600 ready/return spaces, 10,000 idle vehicle storage spaces, and 1,100 rental car employee spaces as well as visitor parking. A Quick-Turn Around facility will also be on-site, allowing for fueling, washing, and light maintenance of rental car vehicles.
Quote:
As the second largest rental car market among domestic airports, the ConRAC will improve and streamline the car rental process at LAX.

This president, who controls the Dept. of Transportation funds. Just mentioned LA Metros funds.

He mentioned the feds pay LA for the subways in comparison/regards to the homelessness issue??

was this a threat. ?? IDK but his speech pattern is a jumbled mess. Homlessness, Subway, storm drains into oceans?

Anyway, our state that pays more into the Fed gov then it receives...………………politics. ugh!

A city of 13 million people shouldn't be building light rail lines...

I try to get excited about transit projects in LA, but its projects are so disappointing.

If you want real projects look at the central city core (downtown to the ocean; Ventura Blvd to Exposition) not the outer suburbs.

The real solution is not to build this crap at all. Heavy rail would be ludicrous.

About time for this and Fairfax, and Purple in general.

But aren't there any progress reports on the 10th year of planning and building the Azusa/Cucamonga Line, especially the San Dimas metro area which will now be well served?

Blame the residents who turned down the subway system that could've been 100 years ago.

What they mean is that a city with this big importance and population shouldn't be building expensive train lines with limited capacity and at-grade crossings. It should either build proper subways (higher capacity, more future proof, more reliable, no at-grade crossings) in areas that are closer to the economic and urban centers and have the potential to become more dense and walkable, rather than focusing on equally expensive train lines connecting low density suburban areas.
