Expo Board Talking Dorsey High Tomorrow
Last week, Friends 4 Expo Transit released a statement on one of the Farmdale Avenue crossings urging the Expo Authority to move forward with the project as quickly as possible, "Reopening the Expo Line's environmental clearance for a pedestrian bridge that neither improves safety and convenience, nor satisfies opponents demanding the whole line be underground, could upset the consensus for its consistent design standards, break the budget and schedule, and even kill the project."
This statement was immediately blasted in an email from Damien Goodmon, head of the Citizen's Campaign to Fix the Expo Line, who said, "Friends 4 Expo has finally officially put to paper what we have known all along: they have no concern for the catastrophic events that would occur at Farmdale crossing nor the learning environment at Dorsey High School." (For more debate on this subject, see the post at Metro Rider.)
Whatever side you come down on, this has been one of the most heated debates in the Los Angeles transportation scene. What happens at the board meeting tomorrow may go a long way in helping to settle this battle once and for all.
