Public officials gathered this weekend to celebrate the funding announcement last week that Metro will receive a $38.4-million state grant for improvements to the Blue Line’s busy Willowbrook/Rosa Parks Station, in addition to upgrades for Blue Line signals and tracks. The work is currently set to begin next year and conclude in 2019.
On hand for the media event were Senate President pro Tem Kevin de León, Metro Board Chair and L.A. County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, Senator Isadore Hall, III, California State Transportation Agency Secretary Brian Kelly, California Air Resources Board Vice Chair Sandra Berg, and Coalition for Clean Air CEO and South Coast Air Quality Management District Board member Joe Lyou.
For more details on the state grant, see this previous post on The Source. Here is a PowerPoint with more details on station improvements, which include better lighting, access and connections to the Green Line and surrounding community:
