Westside Subway DEIR Meeting

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority invites
the public to the last round of community update meetings on the
Westside Subway Extension Project prior to the agency’s official
release of the project’s Draft Environmental Impact Statement/Report
(EIS/EIR).

Meetings will present additional data on the performance of the five
alternatives now under study in the EIS/EIR. They will also provide
another opportunity for the public to learn more about the project and
receive updates before the agency releases the Draft EIS/EIR and holds
formal public hearings anticipated for later this summer.

The Westside Subway Extension Project team is currently evaluating
five different alternatives for extending transit service to West Los
Angeles. All of the alternatives currently have a common subway segment
on Wilshire Boulevard extending to Westwood/UCLA. One alternative also
extends to Westwood/VA Hospital, one alternative extends to Santa
Monica, one alternative includes the extension to Westwood/VA Hospital
and adds a possible branch through West Hollywood, and one alternative
includes both the extension into Santa Monica and the possible branch
through West Hollywood. As part of the environmental review process,
the project team must also evaluate a No-Build Alternative and a
Transportation Systems Management (TSM) Alternative. The agency’s Board
will consider staff recommendations in the fall.
