Thanks to voter support of the Los Angeles County Traffic Improvement Plan (The Plan) - presented to voters as Ballot Measure M - in November 2016, Metro allocated $6 billion to the Eastside Transit Corridor Phase 2 Project. Funding for this project, per The Plan’s funding schedule, has been programmed in two cycles.
- Cycle 1 allocates $3 billion in 2029
- Cycle 2 allocates $3 billion in 2053
The Project is also identified in Metro’s Reimagining LA County Plan (also known as the 28 by 2028 Initiative) as a high priority project. Per the Plan/Initiative, if funding can be secured prior to the programmed 2029 funding cycle, one alternative (yet-to-be determined) could begin construction earlier (in anticipation of the 2028 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games).
*The timeline is subject to change based on various factors including funding opportunities (e.g., 28 X 2028 Initiative).
