Major Transit Service Delays Anticipated During Upcoming Transit-Oriented Development Around The Exposition Light Rail Culver City Station
Traffic congestion is anticipated at and around the Exposition Light Rail Culver City Station starting in the near future due to the upcoming construction activities of the Greystar and Platform Development Projects located near the station. Traffic congestion around the station already present due to the Exposition Light Rail Project’s Venice bridge construction will intensify as a result of these two new projects. The additional traffic congestion will directly impact transit service at/around the station, causing delays on Culver CityBus Lines 1, 5, and 7. Delays to other Culver CityBus lines are also anticipated.
