Those new fare gates that were promised to the city are coming to the Wilshire/Normandie Purple Line Station, reports Streetsblog, noting that the gates should be installed "by the end of the week or early next week." According to the blog, the Red and Purple Lines, Green Line, Blue Line and Gold Line (all in that order) will get the gates next. That pretty much refutes what we had reported this spring--that the Gold Line would be the first in the city to feature the turnstiles. Back in May, we also noted that Metro is adding a total of 379 fare gates.
