A community meeting regarding the Expo Light Rail Line connecting Culver City to Downtown Santa Monica will be held tonight at Santa Monica Civic Hall starting at 6:30 p.m.

The Exposition Construction Authority will hold the design update community meeting concerning Phase Two of the Expo Line project.

Stakeholders will receive information on the design progress and will have the opportunity to view progress renderings.

The format will include a short presentation from 6:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. followed by an open house session from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. to facilitate dialogue and community input.

The 15.2 mile line, comprised on Phase One and Phase Two, connects Downtown Los Angeles to Culver City, and Culver City to Downtown Santa Monica.

The line will comprise of 19 stations serving popular destinations like USC, Exposition Park, the Crenshaw District, Culver City, Palms, Cheviot Hills, Rancho Park, West Los Angeles, Bergamot Station, and Downtown Santa Monica.

Service on Phase One is expected to begin by the end of this year or early next year, with service to the Culver City station in 2012.

Phase Two will extend the line out to Santa Monica and construction is scheduled to be completed by 2015.

In March 2011, the Exposition Construction Authority awarded the design-build contract for Phase 2 to Skanska-Rados Joint Venture. Major construction is scheduled to begin in early 2012.

The meeting will be held at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, located at 1855 Main Street, Santa Monica.
