Expo Line Construction Road & Lane Closures Result in Increase in Car Accidents


Road and lane closures associated with construction of the Expo Line in Santa Monica and West Los Angeles have resulted in an increase in the number of car accidents near Expo Line construction zones.

Whether it's road closures at Broadway and 11th St. in Santa Monica, or lane and road closures on Pico Blvd. near Sawtelle Blvd. in West Los Angeles, the lawyers at our Santa Monica personal injury law firm have seen a significant increase in the number of traffic collisions around Expo Line construction sites.

One of our client was a driver who was struck by a tourist at 11sth & Colorado in Santa Monica. The tourist had to abort a left turn at the last minute due to the closure of 11th St., and slammed into our client's car.

Last Friday about 5:10 p.m., I drove by a roll-over collision that had just occurred at Pico & Purdue in West LA. Traffic on surrounding roadways was botttlenecked due to both road and lane closures on Pico and Sawtelle, made worse due to people leaving work.
