The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority will host three community open houses on Jan. 21, 24 and 26 for the Sepulveda Transit Corridor Project, which seeks to build a heavy rail line or monorail between the San Fernando Valley and West Los Angeles.
Metro is conducting an environmental review for the project and engaging pre-development agreement teams to help further evaluate and refine potential project alternatives. Metro is evaluating three heavy rail alternatives and three monorail alternatives.
The Sepulveda Transit Corridor Project will be divided into two segments: an initial segment between the San Fernando Valley and Westside, and a second segment from the Westside to Los Angeles International Airport. The project is funded in part by Measure M, a transportation sales tax approved by L.A. County voters in 2016. The Measure M funding plan identified $9.5 billion in funding from local, state and federal sources, including $5.7 billion for the Valley-Westside segment and $3.8 billion for the Westside-LAX segment.
The open houses will provide information specific to the potential station locations and their entrances so the public can learn how they can access the future rail line. The open houses will give attendees the opportunity to ask questions of agency staff and consultants, as well as pre-development agreement team representatives on station locations and entrances being studied.
The first open house will be held on Jan. 21, from 9 a.m.-noon in the Marvin Braude Constituent Center, 6262 Van Nuys Blvd. The second will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 24, from 5-8 p.m. at Westwood United Methodist Church, 10497 Wilshire Blvd. A virtual open house will be held on Thursday, Jan. 26, from 6-8 p.m., via Zoom.
