Document Description
The Proposed Project would construct a heavy rail station to extend the current termini of the Metro B (Red) and/or D (Purple) Lines at Los Angeles Union Station. Station access options include a connection to Mesquit Street/Santa Fe Avenue through property owned by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. Existing track alignment would need to be revised to accommodate the Proposed Project. This may include new tail tracks, new crossover tracks, and relocating tracks owned by Metro, SCRRA, Amtrak, and/or BNSF Company. The track relocations may also require partial acquisition of a parking area located on the east side of the Lucky Brand Jeans building. Ancillary facilities may include, but are not limited to, a traction power substation, operator facilities, benches, ticketing kiosks, and bicycle racks.
