Watch Metro Build the Expo Line's Downtown Santa Monica Station

A few weeks ago, Transit Coalition Forumer Gokhan linked to a Santa Monica website featuring a live construction camera for the Expo Line's future Downtown Santa Monica Station.  This location will soon become an epicenter for pedestrian activity in Santa Monica, with the Expo Line expected to carry 64,000 passengers per day by 2030.  Downtown Santa Monica Station will be in close proximity to the Santa Monica Pier, Third Street Promenade and Santa Monica Place.  A slew of proposals for new mixed-use developments have also emerged within walking distance of the station.
