Today I read about the L.A rail revolution celebrates their 20th year anniversary which they have been constructing railroads. They construct 4.5 mile construction that began a brand new regional rail construction. L.A is 1 of the major cities across the world with the most high speed , high capacity subways. Threw the history of L.A rail road construction which required $1.431 billion for the initial segment , that was started in 1986 and opened in 1993.
During the railroad construction the constructers faced a couple challenges including a subway fire , buried fuel oil tanks , and draining. Threw the construction workers also found the oldest mammoth collection of fossil ever recorded . Downtown L.A subways had been a very good way for transportation it crates more transportation option for the residents of L.A. L.A subways had help out lots of people such as workers, students and adventures it helpful for gas saving. Planners want to continued expansion and increased people riding reaching 48 million riders on the Red and Purple lines in 2012.Planners are expected to open in Santa Monica in 2016 and the Metro Purple Line is expected to reach La Cienega Blvd by 2023, making its way to Westwood in 2036 they would like to move faster but they need more funding
