Project Status

SIGN UP FOR PROJECT UPDATES!

We’ve been hard at work gathering input from the Willowbrook community and Station users, and making significant progress on the new design. Feedback received through community meetings, pop-up events, and a Green and Blue Line platform survey has played a significant role in shaping new design opportunities to create a more efficient and welcoming Station and community plaza.

Additionally, in January 2017, Metro partnered with local community organizations to complete a walk audit of the Station and surrounding area to highlight opportunities for multi-modal access and connectivity improvements. This audit was one of 22 conducted as part of the Metro Blue Line First/Last Mile Plan and, in addition to developing guidance for accessibility improvements to the Station, will generate program recommendations for the Metro Bike Hub in the new community Plaza. Stay tuned for additional opportunities to let Metro know how to make getting to and from Willowbrook/Rosa parks Station easier, as well as how we should program the new Bike Hub to create a true mobility resource for the community.

Platform Survey

Metro reached out to patrons on both the Green and Blue Line platforms by surveying and asking them to share their thoughts on how to best redesign the station to improve circulation and community connections, as well as increase capacity and safety. A summary of those findings is available here .

Previous studies of patron usage data collected from fare gates and TAP card validators at the Station revealed that at least 88 percent of station users are rail-to-rail transfers. To supplement the input collected through community outreach, the survey captures the perspectives of passengers who currently may not leave the Station as they transfer between the Green and Blue Lines.
