The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (METRO) will hold three public meetings in September for the I-710 Corridor Project Environmental Impact Report and Environmental Impact Study (EIR/EIS).

Metro and six partner agencies are now conducting an Environmental Impact Report/ Environmental Impact Study to analyze the range of possible improvement alternatives for the I-710 corridor.

The I-710 EIR/EIS Corridor Project will study 18 miles of the I-710 freeway between the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles and the Pomona Freeway (SR-60). The study area encompasses 15 cities and unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County adjacent to the freeway corridor.

The following community meetings are planned for September where the public will receive an update on alternatives being studied as part of the EIR/EIS process along the I-710 corridor.

The EIR/EIS, a study required by federal and state statutes, is an assessment of the likely influences that future improvements may have on the environment and communities along the corridor. It includes analyses of ways to reduce or avoid possible adverse environmental impacts.

Metro is joined by several partner agencies in completing the I-710 Corridor Project EIR/EIS. These agency partners include the Gateway Cities Council of Governments, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), the Port of Long Beach, the Port of Los Angeles, the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) and the I-5 Joint Powers Authority.
