Regional Connector Public Meetings

The FTA and Metro have prepared a Final Environmental Impact Statement /Environmental Impact Report (Final EIS/EIR) for the Regional Connector Transit Corridor Project. The review period begins on Friday, January 20, 2012 and lasts for 30 days, ending on Monday, February 20, 2012.The document is available for viewing and download online at www.metro.net/regionalconnector .

The Regional Connector Transit Corridor Study commenced in 2007 with the development of the Alternatives Analysis , which looked at over 30 potential alternatives. In 2009, the Metro Board of Directors approved the initiation of the Draft EIS/EIR to analyze four alternatives. In late 2010, a fifth alternative was added to the study. This fifth alternative was identified as the “Locally Preferred Alternative” (LPA) in October 2010. The LPA was then further refined to address community comments regarding potential construction impacts. Portions of the Draft EA/EIR were recirculated during the summer of 2011.

The Final EIS/EIR document is the culmination of in-depth technical analysis, extensive community and stakeholder input as well as geotechnical work completed by field experts. Responses to the thousands of individual comments submitted by the community-at-large, organizations, agencies, and elected officials are included in the document.

You are encouraged to attend the open houses scheduled for early February. The purpose of the open houses is to make staff available to answer questions that you might have about the document.
