The Expo Light Rail Project has crews working along Colorado Avenue, which will mean more traffic in Santa Monica.

Starting Feb. 18, eastbound lanes of Colorado Avenue will be closed between Fourth and Fifth streets for construction of a new station.

There are also closures starting this week on 20th Street and Cloverfield Boulevard. Those closures start at 8 a.m.

Improvements are also coming for Lincoln Boulevard, south of the 10 Freeway. The improvements will include resurfacing the road, improving crosswalks and provide traffic signal cameras.
