When crews tore down the 1920s Motor Avenue bridge this summer, freelancer photographer Mark Morris captured it on camera and created a beautiful time lapse video.
It was demolished in July to make way for the Expo line connecting Culver City to Santa Monica. The $1.5 billion extension is scheduled for completion in 2015, and will allow light rail trains to travel from downtown Los Angeles past the current terminus in Culver City to downtown Santa Monica.
The new Motor Avenue bridge will have room for two tracks, so trains can easily run in both directions, according to the Metro blog, The Source.
New bridges for the Expo tracks are being built across the Westside. Construction is also underway to build one over Olympic Boulevard at Centinela Avenue in Santa Monica and an overpass is being erected next to the old Southern Pacific rail bridge over National Boulevard in Palms.
