Originally built in 1990, the station was transformed in 2021 into a state-of-the-art transit hub offering improvements for Metro Rail riders and surrounding neighborhoods. The $129-milion renovation and modernization includes an extended A line platform and an expanded transfer mezzanine between the A and C Line platforms.
Working with glass partner, SJN Builders, GlasPro fabricated over 7,500 square feet of glass for the new platform and transfer mezzanine. The platform features a canopy to diffuse direct sunlight as riders wait for approaching trains. The glass canopy is made up of 86 panels of 3/8” low iron tempered with frit on surface number 1 / .060 SGP / ¼” low iron tempered and heat soak tested. The welcoming mezzanine includes glass walls made up of GlasPro colored glass in Evergreen, Gray, and Solar Blue. The long glass panels are made up of ¼” color tempered / .060 SGP / ¼” clear tempered in varying sizes.
The station renovation was part of the New Blue Improvements Project State of Good Repair Program that included the $350-million overhaul of the entire A Line (Blue). The station, located at the intersection of Imperial Highway and Wilmington Avenue in the Willowbrook community of Los Angeles County, is a major transfer point for commuters.
