Public Meetings: Green Line to LAX

10:27 PM PDT on August 12, 2011

Metro will host three community workshop meetings in late August to introduce community stakeholders to a study underway examining ways to connect the growing Metro Rail system to the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

      The focus of the study is a four square mile area bounded by La Cienega Boulevardon the east, Manchester Avenue to the north, Imperial Highway to the south, and the LAX airport terminals on the west. Initial alternatives under consideration include Light Rail Transit (LRT), Automated People Mover (APM) and Bus Rapid Transit (BRT). Metro is currently analyzing the various options for each transit type in order to narrow down the number of alternatives that will be carried forward to the environmental review phase.

      Three community meetings in August include:

·        Tuesday, August 23, 2011 (6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.) Flight Path Learning Center,6661 West Imperial Highway, Los Angeles.

·        Thursday, August 25, 2011 (6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.) Metro HeadquartersBuilding, Plaza Level Lobby, 1st Floor, One Gateway Plaza, Los Angeles.

·        Tuesday, August 30, 2011, (6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.) Veterans’ Memorial Complex, Yanji-Iksan Room, 4117 Overland Avenue, Culver City.

      Metro encourages public participation and wants to hear about the community’s vision for improving transit services to LAX, including how a connection to LAX might reduce traffic congestion and improve transportation options to and from the airport, best serve airport users and local employees, and provide travelers with the level of transportation they expect when visiting Los Angeles County.

      The three workshops will be open house formats where the public will have the opportunity to view project boards and share ideas at interactive stations. Metro project staff will be available during the workshops to answer individual questions.

      Measure R, the half-cent sales tax increase approved in 2008, provides $200 million in partial funding for the Metro Green Line to LAX project.

      For information on the Green Line to LAX Project, the public can call 310.499.0553or visit the project web site at metro.net/greenlinetolax.
