Document Description
The Exposition Metro Line Construction Authority proposes to construct a passenger station at the intersection of Farmdale Avenue and Exposition Boulevard. Farmdale Avenue would remain open to crossing vehicular traffic at Exposition Boulevard, with crossing fates and signals, similar to what was proposed for the at-grade crossing at Farmdale Avenue as part of the original Mid-City/Exposition Light Rail Transit Line (Expo LRT) project. Expo estimates that final design and construction of the station will require between 12 and 15 months. With a system opening currently contemplated for the summer of 2011, Expo may decide to use an interim stop-and-proceed procedure until the station is completed. During the initial interim phase, operating the at-grade crossing with a stop-and-proceed operation variation would not result in any physical modifications to the Farmdale Avenue crossing beyong those already evaluated in teh FEIS/EIR and thus would not result in any environmental changes or new potentially significant environmental impacts beyong those evaluated in the FEIS/EIR.
