The Metro Board of Directors meet on Thursday for a meeting that should be fairly subdued compared to some of their recent monthly get-togethers.
The item likely to be of interest to most people: The Board must formally approve free subway and Orange Line busway service on the weekend of July 16-17, when the 405 will be mostly closed between the 10 and 101 for the partial demolition of the Mulholland Bridge.
The free subway service had been previously announced; the addition of free Orange Line busway service is now being sought. I don’t expect this to be very controversial, given that public officials — including many on the Board — have been encouraging the public to plan ahead for the 405 closure and/or to avoid driving that weekend.
