    I think the port headline should be “reaches” not “rejects”.

    The petition at change.org is for a below-grade crossing at Florence & Centinela, separate from the campaign for full grade separation on Crenshaw Blvd. There is an “option” for a grade separation at Centinela in the Crenshaw RFP. The goal is to try to get contractors to  come up with ways to include that option without increasing the cost. Same as Leimert Park.

    The petition’s assertion that light rail lines built in affluent areas don’t have grade crossings is flat out ridiculous. The Gold Line doesn’t have grade crossings in Pasadena? Expo Line doesn’t have grade crossings in Santa Monica?
