Road Construction Sign

You might want to take this into consideration as you plan your travel down Crenshaw over the next couple of days–I mean in addition to your swerving to avoid the MANY potholes already on Crenshaw thanks to the Expo Line construction. Welcome to the new highway to hell.

Metro contractors will be conducting exploratory drilling as a part of the planning and environmental analysis for the proposed Crenshaw/LAX Transit Corridor Project.  Collecting soil samples is essential to assess the conditions below the ground surface in order to prepare the necessary plans for future trackways, station structures, and tunnels associated with a Light Rail Transit (LRT) line.

In plain English, they’ll be blocking the streets and holding up traffic.  Be prepared to take an alternate route, I’d tell you mine but then why chance that too many cars decide to take it and I get stuck in the same traffic I was trying to avoid, lol.
