WESTSIDE — The California Public Utilities Commission this week gave another OK for 27 new rail crossings to be constructed as part of the Expo Line project.

Phase 2 of the construction of the Expo Line, which will connect downtown Los Angeles to the Westside, is expected to be completed by late 2015.

“We appreciate the CPUC’s diligence in reviewing the crossings for the Expo Line. Today’s decision allows us to remain focused on completing the Expo Line in 2015 and bringing a new transit option to Los Angeles,” said Expo Construction Authority CEO Rick Thorpe.
