New transportation infrastructure funding was announced last week, ahead of the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Los Angeles. Money will be used to expand the Metro Los Angeles rail system and improve connections between neighborhoods.

LA Metro received $709.9 million from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and the Fiscal Year 2024 transportation spending law, which will go toward the D Line (Purple) Subway Extension Project and the East San Fernando Valley Light Rail Transit Project.

The Los Angeles region will also receive $160 million in new federal grant funding for street and transit infrastructure, including $139 million to improve transportation mobility access during the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Tunnel mining operations are now complete on all three sections of the Metro Purple (D) Line Extension project. .

“This funding will help reshape the future of our city and make it a better, safer, and more accessible place to live and work,” said U.S. Representative Jimmy Gomez. “As we prepare to host the Olympics, these initiatives will not only showcase the resilience and innovation of Los Angeles but also leave a lasting legacy for generations to come.”
