Purple Line Extension
A citizens’ oversight committee is questioning the use of that money.
The first four miles of the Purple Line extension to the Westside are "on track" to open in 2023.
But it’s still waiting on the $1.3 billion.
That’s more than twice the old budget.
"Additional protections" are also being worked out for Beverly Hills High School.
"Our students today are going to get a lesson on Rosa Parks."
The school board president launched a website blasting the project, and students are planning a districtwide walkout Friday.
A county supervisor is pushing for a rail alignment that has the potential to revolutionize transportation across Southern California.
When the Purple Line extension is finished, you’ll be able to ride from Downtown to Westwood in 25 minutes.
The new subway track will connect to the existing Koreatown station, bringing road closures to Wilshire Boulevard.
The revamped rail yard would help Purple Line trains run every four minutes.

Metro previously spent nearly two decades in court fighting the contractor that will now build the subway extension from Wilshire and La Cienega to Century City.

Metro has lined up federal funding to bring the Purple Line subway west to Beverly Hills and Century City by 2026, with stops at Wilshire Boulevard and Rodeo and Avenue of the Stars and Constellation Boulevard.
Metro contractors have finished key above-ground work on the future Wilshire/La Brea station, allowing for the end of inconvenient weekend street closures that have been a fact of life for Miracle Mile drivers since June.
Beverly Hills loves suing to stop the Purple Line, but a federal ruling on Friday wasn't in its favor. The court's ruling means that Metro will move towards firming up its much-needed federal funding for the second section of the line.
We've known for a while that in order to do work on the Wilshire/La Brea station, street closures in the area were going to happen. Now we know they start next weekend.
