Many people and community groups are very interested in the Sepulveda Transit Corridor project that will build a heavy rail or monorail between the Van Nuys Metrolink station, Ventura Boulevard, UCLA, the D Line (Purple) station in Westwood and the Expo Line. A second phase of the project would eventually run to the LAX area.
To help answer some of the many questions including our agency’s approval process, funding, and potential easements (to name a few topics) — we have posted new Frequently Asked Questions about the project. The English version is here, and the Spanish version is here.
We also invite you to a Metro lunchtime webinar on the Sepulveda Transit Corridor project on Tuesday, October 26, 2021. We will be posting the details soon but we wanted to get the webinar on everyone’s radars.
The project web page is here and has a wealth of info about the project, including last year’s Feasibility Report and an explainer on the two firms working with Metro to develop a monorail and heavy rail alternatives. Measure M, the half-cent sales tax approved by 71 percent of Los Angeles voters in 2016, will heavily fund the project.
Today, Metro also held a virtual meet-and-greet with some project stakeholders. A video recording of the meeting is below.
