Capital Projects

Division 20 Portal Widening & Turnback Facility Project
In order to accommodate increased service levels on the Red/Purple Lines, Metro is moving forward with two critical facility improvements: a new turnback facility in the Division 20 yard and a widening of the heavy rail tunnel south of the US-101 freeway.
Emergency Security Operations Center (ESOC)
Metro is developing a new three-story Emergency Security Operations Center (ESOC) on property already owned by Metro. The new facility will serve as the Emergency Operation Center (EOC) and central location for Metro security operations, radio dispatch and emergency coordination. Metro is also planning to integrate Rail and Bus Operations Centers into the facility in the future.
Patsaouras Plaza Busway
A new transit busway station for the Metro Silver Line and other transit buses operating on the El Monte Busway. The design will place the busway south of Patsaouras Transit Plaza, in the median of the El Monte Busway next to US-101. The new busway station will allow buses travelling in both directions to serve Union Station with a minimum delay for passengers traveling to other destinations.
State of Good Repair
Under the State of Good Repair initiative, Metro employs a variety of projects to keep existing and future transit assets in good working order, while substantially upgrading the overall transit system.
