This station was constructed as part of the Gold Line Foothill Extension project Phase 2A. It began revenue service on March 5, 2016.[5][6]

Due to heavy rain in March 2016, the previously delayed underpass construction on N. Citrus Ave. was flooded. The Citrus Avenue extension and underpass was finally opened in September 2016.
