Document Description
The project is an approx. 9-mile heavy rail transit subway that will operate as an extension of the Purple Line. In April 2012, the Metro Board certified the Final EIS/EIR. In May 2012, the Metro Board approved the FEIS/EIR for Phase 2 and 3 of the project. Metro has since advanced the design of Section 3 of the Project resulting in refinements to this section. Refinements are to the construction staging areas; alignment at the VA Medical Center; entrances to the Westwood/UCLA and Westwood/VA Hospital Stations; access to the Westwood/VA Hospital Station; murals near the VA; construction method for the Westwood/VA Hospital Station crossover; tunnel size; grouting, and underground conduits. An Addendum was prepared pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15164 and found that none of the changes described in the Addendum represent substantial changes to the project, result in new significant impacts, or result in previously identified significant effects becoming substantially more severe than shown in the Final EIS/EIR.
