The study evaluates alternatives to improve mobility in the Crenshaw/Prairie Transit Corridor which extends approximately 10 miles north to south from Wilshire Boulevard in the north, south to El Segundo Boulevard, between Arlington Avenue on the east and Sepulveda Boulevard and La Tijera Boulevard/La Brea Avenue on the west. The study area includes the cities of Los Angeles, Inglewood, Hawthorne, El Segundo and portions of unincorporated Los Angeles County.
The following public meetings to review the study update are scheduled as follows:
Metro held three public scoping meetings in October 2007 to obtain community input on the scope of the alternatives to be studied and to help guide the development of alternatives to address the need for regional transit accessibility.
Based on feedback from these meetings as well as more detailed technical analysis, some potential routes or alignments have been eliminated from further consideration and others have been added.
Metro has reviewed all public comments and, based on this feedback, has developed a number of alternatives for further analysis including various modes and alignments. These upcoming meetings will update the public about the results of the scoping process and next steps in the study’s progress. A project update presentation is scheduled for the beginning of each session, followed by a questions and answers session for the remainder.
An initial analysis of alternatives is the first step in the environmental clearance process. The Metro Board of Directors will determine how to move the project forward to subsequent environmental review stages with input from the community.
