Exposition Blvd./Western Ave. - Jefferson Park - Metro Expo Line

Project Date: 2008

Recognizing the evaluative power of the UST's models for planning of the Crenshaw and Expo Park areas of the Metro Expo Line, the Expo Rail Authority again turned to the Urban Simulation Team for visualization services of another area of the line of particular concern. The Expo Line, which will ultimately link downtown and west Los Angeles, mainly via the Exposition Boulevard existing right of way, passes along the southern edge of the Foshay Learning Center. Again, it became necessary for the Expo Rail Authority to fully study the safety of the area through which the train will pass to ensure the safety of the school children traversing at Western Avenue. The team was asked to prepare a proposed condition model of Exposition Blvd. and it's surroundings from one block west of Western Avenue to five blocks east of Western.
