Last December, the Metro Board of Directors certified the final environmental impact report for the proposed 96th Street Transit Station, which will create the long-sought rail link to LAX by connecting the Green and Crenshaw/LAX lines to a future automated people mover.
The $600-million project will span across 9.5-acre site located one mile east of the LAX central terminal area, with plans calling for three light rail platforms, a bus plaza, a bicycle hub and passenger pick-up and drop-off areas. An opening date is expected sometime between 2021 and 2023.
New renderings for the project have now emerged through a Metro presentation posted to r/LosAngeles. See them below.
