Metro has a plan to make it easier to get around L.A. County, including streets that are safer for everyone. Metro wants your input to re-evaluate Randolph Street and other possible routes for Segment B of the Rail to River project that will connect residents via a bicycle and pedestrian corridor from the Metro A Line (Blue) to the Los Angeles River.
Join one of the two* meetings on the supplemental alternatives analysis study for Segment B including:
•A project overview and history
•Meeting the project team and asking questions
Additionally, there will be an opportunity to provide input on current walking or biking options, challenges, destinations, routes and express what you would like to see for this segment of the corridor.
*Both meetings will provide the same information.
The Rail to Rail/River project will be built in two segments. Segment A of the project is referred to as “Rail to Rail” because it will run between the future Crenshaw/LAX Line and the A Line. This segment began pre-construction activities on February 1 to clear the right-of-way and soil treatment work.
The “Rail to Rail” portion of the project is approximately 5.6 miles in length, following the old freight right-of-way that goes along parts of Slauson Avenue.

How about not build a bike path and just come back to this corridor when there is money for light rail in the future. Literally a direct link between Union Station and LAX with connections to Metrolink, Amtrak, Private buses, Blue Line, Silver Line, Vermont BRT and Subway, and Crenshaw Line and somehow this wasn’t a Priority?
This literally should have been on the 28 by 28 initiative.

What a waste of a corridor. A corridor that Metro owns I believe and considering how hard it is to build anything in this region to waste an owned line is tragic. Fitting in between Expo and the Green line would have provided another east/west route and many connections=. Crenshaw- future Vermont Line- Silver Line and Blue/A line- WSAB branch even if it only ran from Inglewood to South Gate. Would have provided yet another line to LAX and then should have continued as the Green Line down to El Segundo and Torrance. DO NOT overbuild this bike path and consider coming back for light rail in the future.
Yeah given the location and positioning of this ROW, it’s odd that metro only plans to use it for a bike path and nothing more. The amount of connections to other lines that could be made via LRT is significant and the ROW would allow for pretty fast trains as crossing gate preemption should be able to fit along the entire section. Metro really should reconsider this. I wonder if the local neighborhoods were against rail or if metro just simply hasn’t broached the idea.
