Document Description
The City of LA is proposing to construct and operate electrically powered streetcar service via one of four alignment alternatives that are analyzed in the Draft EIR. Boarding platforms would be provided on most blocks along the alignment, with final platform locations to be determined in final design. Streetcar service would operate seven days a week; round trip running times would be approximately 35-40 minutes. Power to the streetcars would be provided by a series of traction power substations located along the alignment and delivered by means of overhead catenary wires supported on trolley poles located in the sidewalks along the alignment. A maintenance and storage facility would also be constructed to service streetcar vehicles.
