Westwood By Subway ... in 23 Years!

— Photo By TJ Sullivan —
LA Observed has posted a timetable for construction of the Subway to the Sea and other rail projects.

The information is, to say the least, frustrating.

Aside from the fact that trains aren't expected to roll into nearby Century City until 2026, it's going to take the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority six years just to extend the line from there to Westwood.

Figuring in the inevitable construction delays, many of us will never live long enough to ride it.

From the MTA report, via LA Observed:
Subway to La Cienega -- 2019

Subway to Century City -- 2026

Subway to Westwood -- 2032

Expo Line light rail phase II, Culver City to Santa Monica -- 2015

Gold Line light rail extension -- 2017

Wilshire Boulevard bus lane in city of Los Angeles -- 2015

Crenshaw Boulevard light rail or bus rapid transit -- 2029

Green Line to LAX -- 2016 to 2018

Westside to San Fernando Valley transit project along the 405 Freeway -- 2038
