Construction of the Crenshaw/LAX green line has been underway for many months now. The project is planned to connect the north-south Crenshaw Line and the east-west Green Line into a monorail system that extends towards the LAX. This 8.5 mile light-rail line will include 8 stations between the Expo Line on Exposition Boulevard and the Metro Green Line with both aerial and below-grade segments.
The construction, however, has been creating issues for merchants along Crenshaw. Recent street closures and blocked sidewalks have made it difficult for patrons and clients to get to some of the businesses. Shop owners had concerns regarding the gradual decline of regular patrons and the outcome it would have during the holiday season. Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Agency has agreed to give shop owners who qualify up to $50,000 each year until the work, which has compromised their business, is done. However, that money is not available until this upcoming year.
