In early 2007, the Exposition Construction Authority began the Phase 2 study to extend Phase 1 of the Expo Line from the current planned terminus at Venice/Robertson in Culver City to Santa Monica. Several large-scale community meetings and dozens of additional key stakeholder meetings with neighborhood associations, chambers of commerce, elected officials, businesses, schools and universities have been held to discuss the alternatives that were studied and to obtain feedback from the public. The Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) was released in January 2009, and the Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) was completed in December 2009.

On February 4, 2010, the Exposition Construction Authority Board of Directors certified the FEIR under the California Environmental Quality Act. The FEIR represents the final environmental document regarding Expo Phase 2. As a result of the Board's approval, engineering and design work will commence and elements of construction may begin in late 2010.

Final Environmental Impact Report

On December 18, 2009, the Exposition Construction Authority completed the Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) for the Expo Phase 2 Project, the proposed extension of the Expo Light Rail Line from Culver City to Santa Monica.

The FEIR examines the potential environmental impacts that may result from the project, evaluates alternatives to the project and identifies measures to mitigate the significant effects. The FEIR is comprised of the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) with revisions, comments received during the public review period, and responses to the comments.
