FIRST METRO SIGNAGE APPEARS IN DOWNTOWN L.A. LOS ANGELES, Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Construction workers for
Metro Rail today installed the first in a series of nine pylons which will mark the entrances to the new Metro Red Line stations. The pylon, which was installed at the entrance to the Civic Center Station, at the corner of First and Hill streets and is the latest addition to the downtown landscape.
The pylon was developed by the well-known architectural firm of Harry Weese and Associates, the consulting architects on Segment 1 of the Metro Red Line. The 12-foot, stainless-steel column, surmounted by the colorful, back-lit logo of the Metro system, was designed to complement a wide variety of urban settings. The pylon was reviewed and enthusiastically approved by the City of Los Angeles' Cultural Affairs Commission. "The pylon is an immediately identifiable marker which will provide clear, direct access to the new Metro Rail station," said LACTC Executive Director Neil Peterson. "It is part of the LACTC's commitment to provide a system which is both user- friendly and meets high design standards." The appearance of the pylon is the latest indication that a transportation renaissance is taking shape in Los.Angeles. Construction crews are working on the finishing touches at all five Metro Red Line stations and those who keep a careful watch on downtown will notice many improvements taking place around the future entrances to the subway as Segment 1 of the Red Line prepares to open ahead of schedule in early 1993. -0- 9/21/92 /CONTACT: Jessica Cusick, 213-244-6556, or Stephanie Brady, 213-2444-6792, both of LACTC/ CO: Los Angeles County Transportation Commission ST: California IN: SU:
