Metro Board Certifies Final EIS/EIR
Approves Project to La Cienega
Westside Extension Friends:
Yesterday was a big day for us! After almost 5 years of work and with your help, the Metro Board of Directors voted 11-1-1 to certify the Final EIS/EIR for the Westside Subway Extension. They also approved the first 3.9 miles of the project and the 3 stations at Wilshire/La Brea, Wilshire/Fairfax & Wilshire/La Cienega.
The Board opted to hold off adopting the full project to the Westwood/VA Hospital until Metro has completed a public hearing requested by the City of Beverly Hills under a provision of the Public Utilities Code. We are working to schedule that hearing now. Following the hearing, we hope to be able to ask the Board to act on the remainder of the project. We will inform you when the hearing has been scheduled.
There is of course much work ahead as we continue to make this project a reality for everyone who travels in and around greater Los Angeles. We’ll be back in touch with more information soon. Thank you for your continuing interest.
