Alert! Change in Traffic Pattern

As part of the Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project, Metro has installed cameras at the at-grade train crossings along Crenshaw Bl between 59th and 48th St. and activated the Photo Enforcement Program on Friday, October 1, 2021. The enforcement program is aimed at mitigating potential train versus vehicle collisions and improving vehicular and pedestrian safety along Crenshaw Bl during train testing and when the new Metro rail line begins operations.

Motorists who violate the left-hand turn traffic signal between October 1, 2021, and January 2, 2022 (warning period), will receive a warning letter from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department notifying them that their vehicle was captured violating the red-light at a rail crossing.  For more information go to: https://www.metro.net/calendar/clax_photo_enforcement
