Eastside Transit Corridor Phase 2 Project Update

Metro has
started work on the environmental analysis of the Eastside Transit Corridor
Phase 2 project that would extend the Gold Line Eastside Extension (under
construction) to cities further east of Los Angeles. Metro is refining the
four build alternatives (SR-60, Beverly, Beverly/Whittier and Washington)
and evaluating which alternatives to advance and study in the Draft
Environmental Impact Statement/Report (DEIS/DEIR).

In
April and May 2009, Metro will provide an update on the project to area
City Councils. As part of these updates, Metro will also host public Open
Houses one hour before each meeting. Please join us at one of the City
Council meetings and Open Houses to learn more about the project.

For
additional information or questions, please visit the Eastside
Transit Corridor Phase 2 Website
or call 213.922.3012.
