  1. There is probably still a posted layover zone on Orange Dr. at Sunset Bl. adjacent to the In & Out driveway. I established it during the Hollywood and Highland station construction. Laying over there provides a possible restroom facility inside of In & Out.

  2. This is why there should be a second station entrance here. I’m guessing that will be addressed once the Crenshaw Line is extended to Hollywood/Highland since a second station box will be required anyway.
