Metro has released the Final Environmental Impact Report for the Division 20 Portal Widening and Turnback Facility.
The project will help improve turnaround times for Red/Purple Line subway trains at Union Station, allow for more frequent subway service and create more space in the subway car rail yard. That’s important with the subway fleet growing and the first two sections of the Purple Line Extension under construction between Wilshire/Western and Century City.
If you submitted your formal comment to Metro about the Draft EIR during the comment period back in Spring 2018, you can read Metro’s responses in Chapter 3 of the final EIR.
The Metro Construction Committee will consider the finalized environmental document on October 18 and the full Metro Board on October 25.
