Metro is preparing a Supplemental/Recirculated Draft Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR) for the Eastside Transit Corridor Phase 2 Project (Project), that proposes to extend the Gold Line further east from its current terminus at Pomona Bl and Atlantic Bl in East Los Angeles to South El Monte via State Route 60 (SR-60) and/or Whittier along Washington Bl.

Four (4) Alternatives are being studied as part of the Supplemental/Recirculated EIS/EIR:

  • No Build
  • SR-60
  • Washington Bl
  • Combined

The SR-60, Washington Bl and Combined Alternatives will also explore opportunities for first/last mile improvements and transit-oriented communities.

As part of these efforts, Metro conducted scoping meetings to receive formal comments on the scope of Supplemental/Recirculated Draft EIS/EIR in June 2019. The scoping meeting materials and a video recording of the presentation are available here .

Metro anticipates releasing the draft environmental document for public review and comment in 2021, followed by public hearings in the project area to gather community input and comments on the draft environmental document. In the meantime, the project team will continue to engage the community through information sessions, tours, among other community events and activities in the coming months to continue to gather feedback about the project.

Please be sure to sign-up to continue to receive project updates and details on other opportunities to get involved.
