Los Angeles County Supervisor and Metro Chairman Don Knabe brought the “State of Transportation” Wednesday to a group of civic leaders from the Gateway Cities and South Bay regions of Los Angeles County at the Cerritos Library.
The confab took transportation on the road, detailing highway, rail and other transportation projects throughout Los Angeles County, with a special emphasis on projects within the Gateway Cites and South Bay regions and state and federal funding expectations for the next year.
Cerritos May Joseph Cho welcomed Metro Board Chairman Don Knabe, Directors Pam O’Connor and Diane Dubois; Ray Tellis, Team Leader, joint FTA and FHWA Los Angeles Metropolitan Office; and Metro CEO Art Leahy and his staff, who provided status reports on Measure R, highway and transit projects and alerts on pending issues in Sacramento and Washington, D.C.

The Gateway Cities include some of the most dense neighborhoods in the region, and is woefully underserved by transit.
Hopefully, the Gateway Cities can get together behind the West Santa Ana Branch light rail project, extended through South Gate and Huntington Park.
