Aviation/Century is an under-construction elevated light rail station in the Los Angeles County Metro Rail system, located near the intersection of Aviation and Century Boulevards in the Westchester district of Los Angeles. The station was designed as a terminal station for the Crenshaw/LAX Line[1] and the Green Line. In 2014, however, LAX and LA Metro approved a plan for an automated people mover to the LAX airport, which will not stop at this station. Instead, the Metro Board approved a new infill station at 96th/Aviation, which will serve the LAX people mover and become a terminal station for the Green Line.[2]

Despite the new airport station, the Aviation/Century station plans continue. The Century railroad bridge was demolished on July 25, 2014. The Aviation/Century station is currently under construction and slated to open in 2019.
