Public Meeting: I-710 CORRIDOR PROJECT EIR/EIS

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.
