Metro is set to host three meetings to update communities on the West Santa Ana Branch Transit Corridor (WSAB) Project, a 19-mile light rail line that will connect southeast Los Angeles County to downtown Los Angeles.
Metro will provide information on Initial Operating Segment (IOS) options, general project updates and the project delivery schedule. As part of the project’s environmental study, staff will be analyzing two Initial Operating Segments (IOS) in addition to the entire project between Artesia and downtown Los Angeles. The two segments are:
- IOS 1 – I-105/Green Line Station to Pioneer Station
- IOS 2 – Slauson Station to Pioneer Station
As we wrote last month, Metro staff is optimistic that IOS 2 is feasible to fund and deliver by 2028. Please see this Source post for more about the initial operating segment options.
The upcoming community meetings will be held:
Wednesday, Oct. 23 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at St. Francis Xavier Church in Little Tokyo, 222 S. Hewitt Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012
Thursday, Oct. 24 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Simms Park Auditorium in Bellflower, 16614 Clarke Avenue, Bellflower, CA 90706
Saturday, Oct. 26 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Salt Lake Park in Huntington Park, 3401 Florence Avenue, Huntington Park, CA 90255
