Redefined Alternatives

State Route 60 LRT

Generally follows the southern edge of the State Route 60 (SR60) Freeway from the current Metro Gold Line terminus at Atlantic Bl/ Pomona Bl and continues to Peck Rd in the City of South El Monte. A short segment shifts to the north side of the freeway, between Greenwood Av and Paramount Bl. Proposed stations along this route that will be further evaluated

Include:

  • Garfield Av Station in Montebello
  • The MarketPlace Station in Monterey Park
  • The Shops at Montebello Station in Montebello
  • Santa Anita Av Station in South El Monte
  • Peck Rd Station in South El Monte

Washington Bl LRT

Travels south along Atlantic Bl in an underground segment between the current Metro Gold Line terminus station at Atlantic Bl/ Pomona Bl and the Citadel Outlets in Commerce. The route then proceeds east along Washington Bl via aerial and at-grade (street level) alignments ending at Lambert Rd in the City of Whittier. Proposed stations along this route that will be further evaluated include:

  • Redesigned Pomona/Beverly Station in East Los Angeles
  • Whittier/Atlantic Station in East Los Angeles
  • The Citadel Outlets/Commerce Station in Commerce
  • Greenwood/Washington Station in Montebello
  • Rosemead/Washington Station in Pico Rivera
  • Norwalk/Washington Station serving unincorporated

Los Nietos, Whittier and Santa Fe Springs

  • Lambert/Washington Station in Whittier

Combined LRT

Explores the benefits and impacts of operating both the SR 60 and Washington Bl LRT alternatives (as described above). It is defined as the complete build-out of both the SR 60 Alternative and Washington Bl Alternative. Nevertheless, the combined alternative cannot be fully constructed at once due to the current funding schedule . Therefore, Minimum Operable Segments (MOS) will be evaluated for the ESP2 Project Combined Alternative. The MOS approach allows for a start of project construction in the near-term with ultimate build-out of both alignments based on available funds. Any MOS must be able to operate as a stand-alone system and include a maintenance facility.  This approach is similar to the phased-construction of most Metro rail projects.
