Document Description
The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) proposes to implement the Transportation Communication Network (TCN), which would provide a network of structures with digital displays (TCN Structures) that would incorporate intelligent technology components to promote roadway efficiency, improve public safety, augment Metro’ s communication capability, provide for outdoor advertising where revenues would fund new and expanded transportation programs consistent with the goals of the Metro 2028 Vision Plan (Project). Implementation of the Project would include the installation of up to 34 Freeway-Facing TCN Structures and 22 Non-Freeway Facing TCN Structures all on Metro-owned property within the City of Los Angeles (City). As part of implementation of the TCN Structures, a take-down program would also be implemented whereby existing static displays would be removed. The City would establish a Zoning Ordinance that would provide a mechanism to review and approve the TCN Structures citywide.
