Read the announcement at Streetsblog for all the information.
  • Thursday – In South L.A. it’s not the Big Dig that raises peoples’ hackles. It’s the Crenshaw Line. As the Crenshaw Subway Coalition notes a new mayor could create enough votes to turn the light rail into a below-grade project, the Crenshaw leadership Council meets with Metro staff to discuss the state of the project. Get the details of the meeting, here.
