I’m guessing you heard about the arrest on the news. During the Metro Board meeting on Thursday, agency CEO Phil Washington added “The quick action of these deputies most certainly saved lives.”
This is also a good reminder: if you see something, say something. From the Metro website:
Be alert – Report any suspicious behavior, persons in unauthorized areas or unattended packages to Metro or Sheriff’s personnel immediately.
We encourage all riders to put the Metro security hotline in their phones: 888.950.SAFE (7233).
The problem was caused by damage to a fiber optics cable on the Blue Line, as we posted earlier. Service was restored for this morning. Again, thanks to everyone for their patience who was impacted on this.
Art of Transit, Crenshaw/LAX Line version:
Some fresh pics of the work on the Crenshaw/LAX Line junction with the Green Line just south of LAX. Trains will travel in a trench next to the south runway and then climb on a ramp to the junction.
Praise for Metro’s plans to purchase 35 electric buses and make the fleet comprised entirely of zero emission vehicles by 2030. The Metro Board also approved the purchase of 294 40-foot near zero emission compressed natural gas buses on Thursday.
Please see this post for more on the agency’s strategy to convert from CNG to a zero emission bus fleet.
First look at Onni’s Hollywood tower (Urbanize LA)
The 21-story tower would be near the Red Line’s Hollywood/Vine station and have 429 apartments, including 16 very low income affordable units, so says Urbanize. Seems like the right kind of place to build a big building.
A new study tries to predict how many more 95 degree days the world may see. Our region isn’t as impacted as many others. If you live in the Midwest — might be a good time to start digging that swimming pool.
As for air travel, the extra hot weather seems to be mostly a problem involving smaller planes in desert areas — i.e. Phoenix — or places with short runways where hot air may not provide quite enough lift. A tad alarmist, but interesting.
