If you go by the Expo Line construction in Rancho Park/West LA you’ll see test trains, new crossing gates, and lots of construction vehicles and workers between Overland Ave. and Westwood Blvd. This wide swath of public land has been a staging area for the Phase 2 construction and is now a dumping ground for extra asphalt, unused catenary poles, and broken-down equipment.
