Expo Phase II Environmental Documents Now Online

12:04 PM PST on January 28, 2009

At long last, the Draft Environmental Impact Statement for Phase II of the Expo Line is now online and even though I got the announcement in my inbox just under two hours ago, I have yet to get any emails from proponents or opponents of the line commenting on it.  I'm going to wade into reading the document tonight when I get home from City Hall, but if anyone wants to get their shots in early, here's your chance.

You can find the Draft Environmental Impact Statement here and the notice of availibility here.

One group I have heard from already is a group of bike advocates who note that the proposed bike trail that would run parallel to the line, think of the Orange Line Bike Path for the Westside, is included in the plan.

In Appendix E, Plans and Profiles, the bike path is included in the drawings.

The alternatives chapter (Chapter 2, Page 35) also mentions the bike path:

Bicycle Facilities

Stations will include bicycle racks and lockers in accordance with Metro Design Criteria. Additionally, a parallel bicycle facility (bike path, on street bike lane, or on street bike route) is being planned by others. To the extent possible, this facility has been considered in the development of the LRT Alternatives.
