Document Description
Metro proposes to implement the Transportation Communication Network (TCN), which would provide a network of TCN Structures that would incorporate intelligent technology components to promote roadway efficiency, improve public safety, increase communication, and provide for outdoor advertising that would be used to fund new and expanded transportation programs consistent with the goals of the Metro Vision 2028 Plan. 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). The total maximum amount of digital signage associated with the TCN Structures would be up to approximately 55,000 square feet. As part of TCN Program, a take-down component would be implemented including the removal of at least 110,000 square feet (2 to 1 square footage take-down ratio) of existing static displays. Signage to be removed would include approximately 200 static displays located within the City. The City would establish a Zoning Ordinance that would provide a mechanism to review and approve the TCN Structures citywide. The Zoning Ordinance would regulate the location, operation, design, take-down program and community benefits of the TCN Structures.
