Since the completion of the Metro Blue Line in 1990 and the Metro Green Line in 1995, the Willowbrook/Rosa Parks Station has evolved from a neighborhood station into the fourth most heavily used station in the Metro system. The Willowbrook/Rosa Parks Improvement Project will provide significant upgrades to this busy station, expanding its multi-modal capacity and role as a quality community resource, and ushering it into a new era of Metro Rail. The goals for this Project are to:
- Enhance safety and security
- Improve connections to the surrounding community
- Expand station capacity
- Streamline rail and bus transfers
Metro is working in tandem with several community revitalization efforts in the area, a number of which are spearheaded by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works , to complement significant local streetscape and development investments and build a revitalized gateway into and for the Willowbrook Community.
This revitalized regional facility will provide thousands of Metro patrons with superior access to local treasures and amenities, including the County’s most advanced health care services provider, the rebuilt Martin Luther King Jr. Medical Campus, and the Charles Drew University of Science and Medicine.
