Document Description
Westside Subway Extension Project proposes a 9-mile extension of the existing Metro Purple Line from its current terminus at the Wilshire/Western Station (at Wilshire Boulevard and Western Avenue) west along Wilshire Boulevard to a Westwood/VA Hospital Station (at the south side of Wilshire Boulevard to the east of Bonsall Avenue) that will include seven new stations. These stations are spaced in approximately 1-mile intervals, see attached map. On April 26, 2012 the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) Board certified the 9-mile project but only adopted the project definition for Phase 1 (Wilshire/Western to Wilshire/La Cienega) with stations at Wilshire/La Brea, Wilshire/Fairfax and Wilshire/La Cienega including station entrances, construction staging sites and rail yard expansion. On May 24, 2012 the MTA Board Meeting considered an addendum to the Final EIR pursuant to Public Resources Code section 21166 and CEQA Guidelines, section 15164, and adopted CEQA actions on the Project Definition and Notice of Determination for Phases 2 and 3 (Wilshire/La Cienega to Wilshire/VA Hospital) with stations at Wilshire/Rodeo, Century City, Westwood/UCLA, and Westwood/VA Hospital.
