Blue Line

103rd Street/Watts Towers station is an at grade light rail station on the Los Angeles County Metro Blue Line.[1]

The station has an island platform on the Blue Line right-of-way adjacent to Grandee Avenue near the intersection of 103rd Street roughly in the center of Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. It is adjacent to the Watts Station, which historically served the Watts, Long Beach, and San Pedro lines of the Pacific Electric Railway.

The station is named after Kenneth Hahn, the long-term LA County supervisor for South Central Los Angeles (and father of former Los Angeles Mayor James Hahn) whose support was also instrumental in getting the Blue Line built.
