Document Description
The City of LA is proposing to construct and operate electrically powered streetcar service in downtown LA. The Project, consisting of the Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) - 7th Street Alignment without Grand Ave Extension (Alternative 3). The project route would run east on 1st Street from Hill and 1st Streets, turn south on Broadway, traveling to 11th Street where it would turn west and continue on to Figueroa Street. The streetcar would then turn north on Figueroa Street and travel to 7th Street, where it would turn east. From 7th Street, the streetcar would turn north on Hill Street, then continue back to 1st Street, completing the circuit by turning west on 1st Street to Hill & 1st Streets terminal point. Inclusion of Grand Avenue Extension remains an optional addition to the project pending future funding, and would run west on 1st Street from Hill Street, then south on Grand Ave to a terminal point north of 2nd Street (Alternative 2). The proposed Project includes a Maintenance Storage Facility (MSF) to provide a location for secure storage of streetcar vehicles when they are not in operation, and regular light maintenance of the vehicles to keep them clean and in good operating condition. The MSF site is located at the west side of Broadway between 2nd and 3rd Streets (EIR Site 4). There is an alternate MSF site located at the southeast corner of 11th and Olive (EIR Site 2).
