Description
Workers installing columns that will hold large sound barrier "walls" along the Orange Line in an unidentified area of Tarzana. Most of the $329.5 million, 14-mile route is fenced off, but it still crosses 36 signaled intersections and has 13 scheduled stops on its route. MTA identifies all of its Metro Rail lines by assigning each line a different color. The Orange Line was formerly named San Fernando Metro Rapidway, but the MTA Board of Directors approved the new name on January 22, 2004, and it refers to the many citrus trees that once blanketed the San Fernando Valley. Orange Line buses, known as Metro Liners, travel between the Warner Center and North Hollywood Metro Red Line subway station in approximately 42 minutes; its route parallels the 101 Freeway. Photograph dated February 4, 2005.
