Canoga Transportation Corridor, Metro Orange Line Extension (North)
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Rapid transit improvements are proposed along City streets and the 100-foot wide right-of-way owned by Metro. Rapid transit improvements would include bus service, including right-of-way improvements and a fixed guideway, along Canoga Avenue. Currently, there are numerous leases and licenses/easements within the Metro-owned right-of-way primarily for commercial and industrial uses. Canoga Avenue includes commercial and industrial uses, as well as some residential uses including several mobile home parks. The General Plan designates the Metro right-of-way for Public Facilities (PF).

Document Description
The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) proposes to extend bus service, including right-of-way improvements and fixed guideway, from the existing Orange Line terminus at Canoga near Vanowen, north to the Chatsworth Metrolink Station. Two potential build alternatives are analyzed: (1) Dedicated Lane Rapid Bus on Canoga (including consideration of three options to connect to the Chatsworth Metrolink Station), (2) Canoga Avenue Busway -- MOL Extension (including consideration of five options to connect to the Chatsworth Metrolink Station). In addition the No Project Alternative and a Transportation Systems Management (TSM) Alternative are analyzed. In addition the EIR summarizes the screening analysis used to narrow the range of alternatives to be studies. Modifications to the Division 8 bus maintenance facility on Canoga at Nordhoff, and a new bus parking facility are also evaluated in the EIR.
