Metro has a plan to make it easier to get around LA with better transitto serve the Arts District, Boyle Heights and surrounding communities.Metro is studying a new proposed Metro Rail station near 6th Street in the Arts District that would extend the Metro B Line (Red) and/or D Line (Purple) south of the current terminus at Union Station.
As part of the environmental review process, Metro is preparing an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for this project, funded by the City of Los Angeles. The environmental review process was initiated with a 60-day scoping phase in spring 2021.
Metro anticipates releasing the Draft EIR in late 2023. As we continue to study the project, we will provide an update on public engagement opportunities as they become available.
This project is being designed to maintain and limit impacts to Metro B Line (Red) and D Line (Purple) operations during construction and operations.
Funding beyond the EIR has not been identified and the project does not have a construction or open date.
