The Metro Board of Directors is gearing up for its September meetings and agendas are now posted for Board Committees.
Of those, I thought the above Metro staff report above was the most interesting. It provides an update on the status of Measure R transit and road projects. It also explains a policy decision that the Board may make this month on moving ahead with the planning documents for a variety of projects due to be completed in the second and third decade of Measure R — i.e. the 2020s and 2030s.
On the transit side, this includes projects such as an extension of the Eastside Transit Corridor Phase 2 (a possible Gold Line extension), the South Bay Green Line Extension and a transit project to span the Sepulveda Pass, among others. There’s more info on metro.net’s planning page.
The item is scheduled to be discussed at the Board’s Planning Committee meeting this afternoon at 2:30 p.m. If you have questions about any of the ongoing studies, I’ll try to answer them on the comments page.
