Metro has completed a Feasibility Study which analyzed improvement alternatives for congestion hot spots along the SR-91, I-605, and I-405 corridors.

I-710 Corridor Project

The Long Beach Freeway (I-710) is a vital transportation artery for both commuter and goods movement linking the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles to points throughout Southern California and beyond.

Northwest 138 Corridor

Situated in the Antelope Valley in the northwest corner of Los Angeles County, State Route 138 (SR-138) extends 36 miles from Interstate 5 (I-5) to State Route 14 (SR-14). Metro and Caltrans have initiated a new environmental study to evaluate the corridor alternatives.

Planned to connect the San Fernando Valley to the Westside via a 10-mile section of the I-405 Freeway, this project is considering both transit and highway improvements.

Soundwall Program

With the passage of SB-45, the California Street and Highway Code was amended to transfer the programming and funding responsibilities of the Post-1989 Soundwall Retrofit Program to regional transportation planning agencies.

SR-710 North Study

To address the SR-710 Gap, we are beginning a new process that involves an education and public involvement program to seek both regional and community-based solutions that are suggested by you, your friends and family, your neighbors, and everyone else in your community.

State Route 2

SR-2 was originally planned and constructed in 1959 to connect with the Hollywood Freeway (US 101) through the neighborhoods of Silver Lake and Echo Park.
