  • Wednesday – Caltrans hosts a pair of scoping hearings on the Downtown Los Angeles Streetscar.

  • Wednesday – The City Council Transportation Committee meets to talk Expo Parking, better traffic signals in Pac/Pal and more. Read the agenda, here.

  • Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday – One week after the I-710 Big Dig team released the alternatives analysis narrowing the potential projects down to six (including one highway tunnel option) they’re hosting a trio of “convenings” in communities along the corridor. Read the announcement at Streetsblog for all the information.
  • Thursday – In South L.A. it’s not the Big Dig that raises peoples’ hackles. It’s the Crenshaw Line. As the Crenshaw Subway Coalition notes a new mayor could create enough votes to turn the light rail into a below-grade project, the Crenshaw leadership Council meets with Metro staff to discuss the state of the project. Get the details of the meeting, here.
