Posted by Ivetta Babadjanian on Feb 20, 2013 - 9:00:05 AM

Colorado Avenue is a main eastbound and westbound street that leads to Santa Monica Pier. It is reported that by 2025, commuters will be able to use the Expo Line to go the beach. The Metro line will come to an end on Colorado Avenue and Fourth Street.

Beginning Tuesday, the eastbound lanes of Colorado Avenue between 4th and 5th streets are permanently closed. One lane will remain open that goes westbound. A partial closure can be expected
between Broadway and the Santa Monica 10 Freeway as well as the intersection of Lincoln Boulevard and Colorado Avenue between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.

The Santa Monica Boulevard exit off the 10 Freeway will be open despite the construction, however, delays are to be expected around Santa Monica Place.
Drivers are advised to use Broadway or Olympic as alternate routes in order to avoid delays while construction continues.

Phase two of the Expo Line, a $1.5 billion project, will extend service to the Westside. As of now, the train connects Culver City to downtown Los Angeles. Phase two will include 6.6 miles of track from Culver City to Santa Monica with a total of seven train stations along the route. In addition, parking will be constructed.

Metro estimates by the year 2030, approximately 64,000 passengers will use the Expo Line between Santa Monica and downtown Los Angeles.
