Metro is hosting three more community meetings to discuss the new northern alignment options (above) under study for the West Santa Ana Branch Transit Corridor, a new light rail line to be built between Artesia and downtown Los Angeles.
These are follow-up meetings to the ones held in March along the corridor. Metro will provide the latest staff updates and ask the community for their feedback on the northern alignment options.
Meeting dates and times are:
Downtown Los Angeles
Monday, April 30
3-5 p.m. and 6-8 p.m.
Metro Headquarters, 3rd Floor, Board Room
One Gateway Plaza
Los Angeles, CA 90012

Metro formally initiated the environmental studies through the public scoping meetings held in summer 2017. Based on the feedback received through the public scoping period and ongoing technical analysis, Metro is studying new northern alignment options in addition to the original four northern options. The Metro Board is scheduled in May to decide which of these options will be carried forward for further analysis in the project’s draft environmental document.
The West Santa Ana Branch will serve the cities and communities of downtown Los Angeles, the unincorporated Florence-Graham community, Vernon, Huntington Park, Bell, Cudahy, South Gate, Downey, Paramount, Bellflower, Cerritos and Artesia.
