The new METRO rail line through the East End is moving closer to completion. Crews Thursday were breaking through old asphalt and concrete off Harrisburg near Oakhurst to clear room for the line. The new roadway will replace existing travel lanes and accommodate a guideway for the new line. The rail line will connect downtown to the Magnolia Transit Center, about 3.3 miles long.

The East End Line is set to be completed in the fall of 2013. The transit line is locally funded.
