Metro to hold community meeting for Purple Line Extension project on June 6

Here is the news release from Metro:

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) will hold a community meeting to discuss preparation for construction for the first section of the Purple Line Extension on Thursday, June 6, 2013 from 5:30-7:30 p.m at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 5905 Wilshire Boulevard in the fifth floor Terrace Room.

Environmental planning has concluded and approvals have been received, allowing work to move forward toward bringing the Purple Line Extension to the Westside.  Construction of the first section of the subway extension will begin in 2014.  Extending from its current terminus at Wilshire/Western, this section adds three new stations at Wilshire/La Brea, Wilshire/Fairfax and Wilshire/La Cienega.

Residents, business and property owners near Wilshire/LaBrea, Wilshire/Fairfax and Wilshire/La Cienega are especially urged to attend.  Metro staff will present information and will be available to answer questions.

The location is served by Metro Lines 20, 720, 217 & 780.  Validated vehicle parking is available in the Museum’s 6th Street underground garage.  Enter from 6th and Ogden.

Spanish and Korean translation will be available at the meeting.
