On May 22, 2020, Caltrans and Metro released a Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), and a Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) for this project. The Draft EIR/EA describes the proposed project, any environmental consequences, and avoidance, minimization, and/or mitigation measures. Supporting technical studies for the Draft EIR/EA have also been prepared on traffic, visual, archaeological, water, noise, air quality, biology, geology, hazardous waste, energy, paleontology, and community impacts.
