Pre-construction geotechnical tests are under way on the Section Two extension of the Purple Line subway, which will reach downtown Beverly Hills and Century City. U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein joined Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and other local leaders for yesterday's Metropolitan Transportation Authority groundbreaking ceremony.
The first section of the subway will run from Koreatown to the Wilshire/La Cienega area in Beverly Hills. It should open in 2023.
