Metro to Hold Two Virtual Public Scoping Meetings for Proposed Antelope Valley Line Improvements on October 15 and 17, 2020

Monday October 12, 2020

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) invites the public to participate on Tuesday, October 15 and Thursday, October 17 in virtual public scoping meetings for the Antelope Valley Line (AVL) Capacity and Service Improvements Program in preparation for a draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) as part of the CEQA environmental review.

At the meetings the public will learn how proposed Antelope Valley Line capital improvements could improve service frequency between Los Angeles Union Station and Santa Clarita Valley up to 30 minutes and up to 60 minutes to the end of line in Lancaster, and will also provide a more reliable commuter rail service to meet mobility needs of residents, employees, and visitors throughout the region.

The three key capital improvements proposed along the AVL corridor in the cities of Santa Clarita, Los Angeles and Lancaster that will facilitate the proposed service increases will be discussed.
