Metro released a Notice of Preparation (NOP) on March 29, 2021 to begin the process of developing a Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the Arts District/6th Street Station, pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).

Metro is receiving public comments on the scope of the DEIR from Monday, March 29, 2021 to Wednesday,  May 12, 2021.

The public is invited to provide input at a virtual scoping meeting (under “Connect with Project” tab) or provide comments via:

Metro anticipates completing the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) in late 2022.

There is currently no funding identified to construct this potential project.

The Arts District/6th St Station is a proposed new Metro B Line (Red) and/or D Line (Purple) station near 6th Street that would provide regional and local transit connections to and from Arts District, Boyle Heights and surrounding communities. The station would be located south of LA Metro’s Division 20 Rail Yard and would be generally bounded by the 6th Street Bridge to the north, 7 th Street to the south, the Los Angeles River to the east, and by Mesquit Street to the west.

With funding support from the City of Los Angeles, Metro is preparing an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) and conducting public outreach for the EIR. Funding for construction has not been identified for this potential project.

Completing this study does not commit Metro to funding and constructing the potential Arts District/6 th St Station and extending heavy rail transit to it.


In January 2017, the Metro Board of Directors passed a motion (Item #41) directing staff to “initiate a Holistic Assessment of Metro’s long-term needs at Division 20 and accommodation of future Arts District station access”. In May 2017, this Assessment was presented to the Metro Board, including a  recommended location for a potential new heavy rail station serving the Arts District located at 6 th Street.

In June 2018, the Metro Board of Directors approved Metro to enter into a funding agreement with the City of Los Angeles to financially support pre-design, public outreach, and the EIR for the Arts District/6th St Station.
