Location

Historic Broadway station is an under-construction underground light rail station on the A Line and the E Line of the Los Angeles Metro Rail system. It is located at the southeast corner of 2nd Street and Broadway in the Historic Core section of Downtown Los Angeles.[1] In planning documents, the station was originally going to be named 2nd St/Broadway.[2]

Construction on the station is complete and the line is currently undergoing testing before an expected opening in early 2023.

Historic Broadway is part of the Regional Connector project, a tunnel through Downtown Los Angeles that will connect the current Metro Rail A, E, and L Lines. The station is planned to be served by both the restructured A Line, connecting Long Beach and Azusa, and the restructured E Line, connecting Santa Monica and East Los Angeles. The station is sited in a private right of way, requiring agreements with the property's owner before a high-rise could be built on the site in the future. It was constructed via the sequential excavation method, the first time Metro has utilized the process.[3] The Regional Connector is scheduled to open in 2023.[3]
