Metro to hold two meetings for Purple Line Subway Extension on Thursday, Feb. 13

Metro is holding a pair of community meetings on Feb. 13 to discuss utility relocation and other work that needs to be done in preparation for construction of the Purple Line Extension’s Wilshire/La Cienega Station:

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) will be hosting two meetings on February 13 for those who live and work near the future Wilshire/La Cienega Station of the Purple Line Extension.  Individuals who live and work along Wilshire between La Cienega and San Vicente, as well as on La Cienega, Hamilton, Gale, Tower and San Vicente are especially encouraged to attend.

The meetings, requested by the City of Beverly Hills, will provide information about construction of the station at Wilshire/La Cienega that is part of Section 1 of the project.  Section 1 will add three new stations as it extends the Purple Line from its current terminus at Wilshire/Western for 3.9 miles to Wilshire/La Cienega.  Pre-construction activities for the first section are currently underway and construction is expected to start later this year.  Topics to be discussed include:

  • What to expect during pre-construction and construction
  • Advance Utility Relocation schedule for 2014
  • How to stay informed
  • Mitigation measures

Content at the meetings will be identical so members of the public should choose the meeting that is most convenient for them.

  1. I’m still asking what happened to the stop at Crenshaw Bl. since the RTD long ago purchased land there for a station? If the Crenshaw line were to be extendede to Wilshire Bl. there would not be a connection available. It only makes sense in the long run.
