Century Crunch Project Finishes Ahead Of Schedule

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The Century Crunch bridge demolition project wrapped up ahead of schedule Monday.

The intersection of Century and Aviation boulevards was reopened around 1:30 a.m., four-a-half hours earlier than planned.

Work began at 10 p.m. Friday to make way for a new light rail station for the Crenshaw/LAX line, which will be completed in 2019.

Crews completed demolishing the old Santa Fe railroad freight bridge, removed debris and installed new traffic signals, he said. They also re-striped traffic lanes and installed K-rail since one lane of Century Boulevard in each direction will be out of commission for 16 months while crews build infrastructure for a new elevated light rail station, Metro officials said.
