Don't Get "Crunched": Use Online Tools

57-Hour Bridge Demolition Operation Planned July 25-28

“Century Crunch” Online Clock, Banner Ads Now Available at Metro.net





          As part of efforts to help individuals, businesses, agencies and other organizations count down to the planned closure of the Century/Aviation intersection at a key entrance to the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) the weekend of July 25-28, 2014, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) has created an official online clock and banner ads that are freely available for public use at metro.net. 

       The “Century/Aviation Intersection Closed: Plan Ahead to Avoid delays” clock counts down the number of days, hours, and minutes before the planned demolition of the old railroad bridge for 57-hours beginning 9 p.m. Friday, July 25 until 6 a.m. Monday, July 28. An old railroad bridge needs to be demolished to allow for the future construction of a new Century/Aviation light rail station.

      Demolition will close a portion of Century Boulevard, a major artery leading into LAX during one of the busiest travel times of the year. It also will restrict traffic on Aviation Boulevard. An estimated 92,800 motorists travel through that intersection on a daily basis.

      A selection of countdown clocks and banner ads in various sizes and options are available to help raise public awareness of the operation and resulting closures.  To obtain the Countdown clock and banner ads, visit http://www.metro.net/projects/crenshaw_corridor/webmasters-spread-word-crenshawlax/
