Concrete work is planned at various locations beginning Thursday as part of Metro’s $1.7-billion Regional Connector Transit Project.
The work will be conducted at the Little Tokyo/Arts District Station, Historic Broadway Station, Grand Avenue Arts/Bunker Hill Station and in areas within the Flower Street/Financial District.
“These concrete pours are a vital step in the process of completing the project,” a Metro statement said. ” All pours will take place within current station and site limits, with through-access maintained.”
Weather permitting, the work is scheduled to begin as early as 5 a.m. on various weekdays through Aug. 7, Metro said.
The Regional Connector Project, forecast to be completed in 2021, will extend from Metro Rail’s Little Tokyo/Arts District Station to the 7th Street/Metro Center in downtown Los Angeles, allowing passengers to access the Gold, Blue, Expo, Red and Purple lines.
The 1.9-mile addition will serve Little Tokyo, the Arts District, Civic Center, the Historic Core, Broadway, Grand Avenue, Bunker Hill, Flower Street and the Financial District.
