Schedules Two Virtual Public Meetings May 25 and June 1
The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) has released its draft Comprehensive Multimodal Corridor Plan (CMCP) for the busy I-405 Corridor and now seeks public review and comment. The agency has also scheduled two virtual community meetings on May 25 and June 1 to enable interested L.A. County residents to learn more about the plan and provide their input.
Metro’s draft plan will serve as a guiding vision for a range of possible transportation-related projects and travel modes that will help Angelenos better traverse one of the most congested corridors in L.A. County and the nation. The plan covers the entire length of the I-405 in L.A. County and three miles on either side, stretching from the San Fernando Valley to the Orange County Line to include 20 individual cities and 40 City of Los Angeles neighborhoods.
Metro’s goal for the plan is to better understand the diverse users and communities relying on and impacted by the congested I-405 Corridor, solicit their feedback, and identify projects that can reduce congestion, move more people, increase accessibility for all users and advance equitable outcomes for historically disadvantaged communities.
Members of the public interested in providing their input on this plan can now visit the project’s “StoryMap,” which contains the draft plan and project list. The StoryMap is available online at https://bit.ly/405cmcpstorymap.
Public comments can be submitted online, through US mail, or phone. The deadline for submission of all public comments is Friday, June 10, 2022.

Metro’s preparation of a comprehensive multimodal corridor plan allows it to compete for a portion of $250 million in State grant funding through the Senate Bill 1 (SB1) Solutions for Congested Corridors Program (SCCP). This program could support the delivery of local sales tax-funded projects via the Measures R and M measures previously approved by L.A. County voters. In previous years, this SB1 program has provided $300 million in funding for other important projects such as the Airport Metro Connector/96th Street Station and the I-105 ExpressLanes. If Metro’s I-405 Corridor plan is adopted, the agency will become eligible to receive potential grant funding from SCCP as early as this year.
