The Sepulveda Transit Corridor project is hosting a virtual community meeting to provide an update on the project’s recently completed public scoping period.
Metro last fall began the environmental phase for the project, which will build a heavy rail line or monorail between the San Fernando Valley and the Westside. A second phase will eventually be built to LAX. The project web page is here.
The meeting will also provide an update on the status of the environmental study and next steps as the project continues to advance technical studies for the project’s Draft Environmental Impact Report.
Thursday, June 16, 2022, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Telephone: (213) 338-8477

Some helpful background:
Metro has released a Scoping Summary Report which provides more information about feedback received from the public during the project’s recent scoping period.
Metro solicited public comments from November 30, 2021, to February 11, 2022, on the project’s six alternatives being studied and issues that Metro should consider during the environmental review. This was just the first step in a multi-year environmental review process. Please see this Source post for more details on the six alternatives to be studied.
We know that many people have questions about other aspects of the project, including costs, property acquisitions and when key decisions will be made by the Metro Board of Directors. Please see this extensive Frequently Asked Questions. A new tunneling fact sheet is also now available.
The project is funded in part by Measure M, the transportation sales tax approved by 71 percent of L.A. County voters in 2016. The Measure M funding plan includes $5.7 billion for the Valley-Westside segment and $3.8 billion for the Westside-LAX segment.
