Heads up, folks: Metro released a Notice of Preparation (NOP) for the Division 20 Portal Widening and Turnback Facility project on October 18, 2017, hosted scoping meetings and recorded public comments until November 17, 2017. Since then, Metro has released a revised NOP to notify the public that the proposed project footprint has been expanded to include the property at 100-120 North Santa Fe Avenue.
This is the project that will allow Red/Purple Line trains to turn around more quickly at Union Station and will make it possible to run more subway trains on the Red and Purple Lines.
Metro invites public comments until February 2, 2018, on the acquisition and reuse of this additional property, as part of the analysis for the Draft Environmental Impact Report.
