In the next two weeks expect some noise and lane closures due to Metro conducting a round of preliminary geotechnical testing for the Regional Connector. Crews will evaluate ground conditions to determine the best way to dig out the future underground light rail line that will connect the Metro Gold Line to the Metro Blue Line. Construction is expected to begin in 2014.
Most of this testing will be done during the day. The tests started on Monday of this week and today they will be testing at General Thaddeus Kosciuszko Way, between Hope and Flower streets and Olive and Second streets. Daily testing locations are updated at twitter.com/metroconnector.
Anytime the city starts working towards improving our metro line I get very excited. It might come at a bit of a price of inconvenience, but I think it is well worth it in the long run. I look forward to the day that you can travel anywhere you desire in Los Angeles and surrounding areas via the metro!
