Public Hearing: Willowbrook/Rosa Parks Station Improvement Project

Metro is developing plans to improve Willowbrook/Rosa Parks Station where the Blue and Green lines meet. The public is invited to attend a public hearing to provide comments on the Draft Initial Study for the Station Improvement Project.

In 2011, the Metro Board of Directors adopted the Rosa Parks Station Master Plan for this busy transfer station.  This project implements that plan and includes enhancements to pedestrian flow, lighting and safety. The project will also improve transfers at the station and create better connections to nearby destinations, including the adjacent Kenneth Hahn Plaza shopping center.

The Draft Initial Study has been prepared to determine if the project will have any environmental impacts and is currently available for public review.  An electronic copy of the Draft Initial Study is posted below.

Here is the date, time and location of the public hearing:
