Metro will host three community open houses, and one of the three will be virtual. It will take place on January 21, 24, and 26 – for the Sepulveda Transit Corridor Project, which will construct a heavy rail line or monorail between the San Fernando Valley and the West Los Angeles area.
Metro has conducted its environmental review for the project and engaged Pre-Development Agreement (PDA) teams to assist in assessing and refining potential project options. Six possible transit options are being considered: three heavy rail alternatives and three monorail alternatives.
The open houses will deliver information specific to the potential station locations and their entrances under investigation and will enable asking questions of agency staff and consultants, plus the Pre-Development Agreement (PDA) team.
The Sepulveda Transit Corridor Project will be split into two distinct parts: an initial segment transiting between the San Fernando Valley and Westside and a second segment from the Westside to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
The project is financed in part by Measure M, the transportation sales tax authorized by 71% of L.A. County voters in 2016. The Measure M allocation plan determined USD9.5 bn in funding from local, state, and federal sources USD 5.7 bn for the Valley-Westside segment and USD3.8 bn for the Westside-LAX segment.
