Live webcast tonight at 6 p.m. of Westside Subway Extension meeting

Metro is holding a community meeting tonight about the Westside Subway Extension at the Westwood United Methodist Church from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Can’t make it? No biggie — there will be a live webcast of the meeting on the Metro website.

The meeting is part of the latest round of community updates on the project. This is the final round of meetings before the draft environmental impact report/study is released. As we posted recently, some of the most interesting material Metro officials will present involves ridership projections, cost, time savings for riders and the federal funding process.

Details on tonight’s meeting and two others being held this week are after the jump.
