Link US Project Update
In July 2019 Metro completed the CEQA environmental clearance on the Link Union Station (Link US) project. Based on available funding to date of approximately $950 million, the Link US project will be implemented in two phases, Phase A and Phase B.
Phase A of the project will include two new run-through tracks on a new viaduct that will accommodate up to nine run-through tracks over the US-101 freeway, as well as right of way acquisition, utility relocation, street improvements, and active transportation improvements. Phase A of the Link US project is funded and will enhance transit connectivity in the Southern California region and is the first step toward bringing high-speed rail to Los Angeles.
Phase B is the full build-out of the Link US project which is currently not funded. Phase B will significantly increase rail service capacity at Los Angeles Union Station by up to 60% to accommodate the planned growth of commuter and inter-city rail services along with the future California high-speed rail service.
