The Draft EIR will analyze the Proposed Project, which includes various route options. The Proposed Project primarily runs along surface streets with some segments running along State Route 134 in mixed-flow freeway lanes.
Within North Hollywood, the proposed project begins/ends at the North Hollywood Metro Red/Orange Line Station. From the station, there are two different route options being considered:
1. Via Lankershim Bl; or
2. Vineland Ave
Both routes would then continue onto the SR 134 at Riverside Dr.
Within Burbank, the BRT would exit the SR 134 to serve the Burbank Media District before continuing along Olive Av to Glenoaks Bl.
Within Glendale, the BRT would operate along Glenoaks Bl, before continuing via three different potential routes:
1. At Central Av, the BRT could merge onto the SR 134 exiting at Harvey Dr, then continue east along Colorado Bl;
2. Via Central Av to either Broadway or Colorado St; or
3. Via Central Av to either Broadway or Colorado St
Both Broadway and Colorado St are being considered for east-west travel within Glendale as each option provides connections to different key destinations within the city, including the Glendale Galleria, The Americana at Brand, and the new Armenian American Museum)
Within the community of Eagle Rock, the BRT would operate along Colorado Bl before merging onto the SR 134 at Linda Rosa Av
Within Pasadena, various route options are being considered:
1. The BRT could exit the SR 134 at Fair Oaks Av and head south to Walnut St. From there the BRT would operate along Walnut St to Raymond Av and connect to the Memorial Park Gold Line Station. It would then continue east on Colorado Bl in mixed-flow lanes to Hill Av at Pasadena City College;
2. The BRT could also exit the SR 134 at Orange Grove Bl and continue east on Colorado Av in mixed-flow lanes to Hill St at Pasadena City College; or,
3. The BRT could operate as a couplet in mixed flow lanes, with buses traveling east along Green St to Hill Av at Pasadena City College. On the return trip, the BRT would travel west along Union St.
