Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) crews have sectioned and aligned existing Green Line rail with new tracks for the Crenshaw/LAX Line.

Rail, fasteners, screws, nuts and bolts are in place and await final assembly, Metro officials said in a blog post.

The agency has closed five Green Line stations as crews work to connect the Green Line to the Crenshaw/LAX Line. The stations will remain closed through April 7.

State-of-good-repair work also is being performed on the closed section of the Green Line during the Crenshaw/LAX work.

The $2 billion Crenshaw/LAX Line will travel 8.5 miles between the Green Line and the Expo Line. Metro broke ground on the project in January 2014.
