The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) will be holding an advisory group meeting for the first section of the Metro Purple Line Extension Project on January 29, 2014. Members of the public are invited to observe the advisory group meeting as local stakeholders discuss construction-related issues for the first nearly four-mile subway segment between Wilshire/Western and La Cienega. Meeting details are as follows:
Wednesday, January 29, 2014
Petersen Automotive Museum
6060 Wilshire Blvd – 4th Floor
Los Angeles, CA 90036
This location is served by Metro lines 20, 720, 217, 780.
Validated parking is available in the structure behind the museum. Motorists should enter the parking structure from Fairfax and bring their parking ticket with them.
During the meeting, the Metro project team will provide an update on pre-construction activities and also focus on station design and art.
The advisory group consists of individuals representing the residents, businesses, property owners and key institutions around each of the three stations in the first section of the project. Those stations are at Wilshire/La Brea, Wilshire/Fairfax and Wilshire/La Cienega. Residents, businesses and property owners in the vicinity are especially encouraged to attend. City staff are also invited to attend the meeting, listen to the discussion and answer questions.
Construction on the first section of the project is expected to begin later this year and scheduled to open in 2023.
Special accommodations are available to the public for Metro-sponsored meetings. All requests for reasonable accommodations must be made at least three working days (72 hours) in advance of the scheduled meeting date.
