Document Description
The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) proposes to implement a light rail transit line that would extend from the Sylmar/San Fernando Metrolink Station on the north to the Metro Orange Line on the south and provide area residents, businesses, and transit-dependent populations with improved mobility and access to the regional transit system. The Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) consists of a 9.2-mile median-running at-grade LRT system with 14 stations. Under the LPA, the LRT would be powered by an electrified overhead contact system (OCS) and would travel2.5 miles along the Metro-owned right-of-way used by the Antelope Valley Metrolink line and Union Pacific Railroad from the Sylmar/San Fernando Metrolink Station south to Van Nuys Boulevard. As the LPA approaches Van Nuys Boulevard it would transition to and operate in a median dedicated guideway along Van Nuys Boulevard for approximately 6.7 miles south to the Van Nuys Metro Orange Line Station. The 9.2-mile route of the LPA is illustrated in Figure 2-1. Similar The LPA would include 14 stations. If the LPA is implemented in two phases, the first phase, or IOS, would consist of the segment of the LPA that extends along Van Nuys Boulevard from the Metro Orange Line on the south to San Fernando Road on the north, a distance of 6.7 miles. As a consequence, the physical and operational characteristics of the IOS would be the same as those for the Van Nuys Boulevard segment of the LPA and the significant or potentially significant impacts of the IOS would be similar to those of the LPA.
