West Santa Ana Branch Transit Corridor Project
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Document Description
Notes: Review Per Lead The Project is a proposed LRT line that would extend approx. 20 miles from downtown LA, through southeast LA County, to a terminus within or near the City of Cerritos, traversing densely populated, low-income and heavily transit-dependent communities. The project would provide reliable, fixed guideway transit service that would increase mobility and connectivity for historically underserved, transit-dependent communities; improve travel times on local and regional transportation networks relative to not making this investment; and accommodate substantial future employment and population growth. The project would provide reliable transit service to meet the future mobility needs of residents, employees, and visitors who travel within the Study Area. The project includes two possible alignment alternatives in the north: Alternatives E and G; utilizes the San Pedro Branch Right-of-Way in the central section; and the Metro-Owned Right-of-Way in the southern section of the Study Area. The project proposes to develop approx. 15 rail stations along the LRT line and identify transit oriented community land use concepts and first/last mile pedestrian bicycle connectivity opportunities associated with the proposed stations. The project will also consider the development of ancillary facilities such as a maintenance and operations facility/job training center, traction power substations, and grade separation structures, as well as transit patron parking areas at selected locations along the project alignment.
