ESFV Utility Relocation
March 6, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm
Light Rail Transit (LRT) is coming to the heart of the San Fernando Valley. This new LRT project will provide connections to key destinations and greater opportunities for transit users to connect to the growing transit network in the San Fernando Valley.
The East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor Project is a 9.2-mile light rail system extending from Van Nuys Metro G Line (Orange) station to the Sylmar/San Fernando Metrolink Station. The initial operating segment (IOS) extends 6.7 miles from Van Nuys Blvd at the Metro G Line (Orange) to San Fernando Rd, it is entirely at-grade and includes 11 new stations. Additional studies are underway to determine the remaining operating segment from San Fernando Rd continuing to Hubbard Rd.
Metro is beginning utility investigation work ahead of the construction of the East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor Project. This work includes potholing and trenching along Van Nuys Blvd during the weekdays, weeknights, and weekends.
