CAHSRA to Help Fund LA Underground Light Rail System

The California High-Speed Rail Authority (CAHSRA) is partnering with the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) to improve connectivity in Southern California by helping fund the Regional Connector Transit Project in downtown Los Angeles.

The Authority is providing almost $115 million to the $1.75 billion project that will connect Metro Rail’s Gold Line to the 7th Street/Metro Centre with a nearly 2-mile underground light rail system. See how crews are constructing this underground tunnel and why the project will make it easier for Southern Californians to get around town:

Regional Connector Transit Project

The Metro Regional Connector Project extends from the Metro Gold Line Little Tokyo/Arts District Station to the 7th Street/Metro Center Station in downtown Los Angeles, allowing passengers to transfer to Blue, Expo, Red and Purple Lines, bypassing Union Station. The 1.9-mile alignment will serve Little Tokyo, the Arts District, Civic Center, The Historic Core, Broadway, Grand Av, Bunker Hill, Flower St and the Financial District.
