Location

Grand Av Arts/Bunker Hill station is an under-construction underground light rail station on the A Line and the E Line of the Los Angeles Metro Rail system. It is located near the intersection of 2nd Place and Hope Street in the Bunker Hill section of Downtown Los Angeles.[1]

In planning documents, the station was originally going to be named 2nd Place/Hope.[2]

Location

The station will be connected to the Broad, and to Grand Avenue, by a pedestrian bridge.[3]

Grand Av Arts/Bunker Hill is part of the Regional Connector project, a tunnel through Downtown Los Angeles that will connect the Metro Rail A, E, and L Lines. Under current plans, the station will be served by both the restructured A Line, connecting Long Beach and the San Gabriel Valley, and the restructured E Line, connecting Santa Monica and East Los Angeles. The Regional Connector is scheduled to open in 2022.[4]

The platforms are located 100 feet (30 m) below surface level, making Grand Av Arts/Bunker Hill the deepest station on the Metro Rail network.[5]
