State budget’s impact on Metro projects to be discussed on KCRW’s “Which Way L.A.?” tonight

The popular radio program hosted by Warren Olney on 89.9 FM will look at the situation with the sale of Prop 1B funds tonight at 7 p.m. David Yale, the deputy executive officer for countywide planning at Metro, will be the guest. Listen here at 7 p.m. (with the “on air” tab at top of page) or at a later time.

As we explained in a recent post, the state canceled the spring sale of Prop 1B bonds, costing Metro $174 million. If the fall bonds are also not sold — a possibility without a state budget — Metro could lose another $400 million.

And that could mean impacts or delays to the I-405 Sepulveda Pass Improvements Pass Project, the first phase of the Expo Line and the Orange Line busway extension, among others — and the Expo Line and Orange Line are almost complete. The Daily News ran a hard-hitting story yesterday explaining what’s at stake.
