New community meetings for LA Regional Connector Project

Written by 

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority will be conducting several community meetings to update the public on the latest developments on the Regional Connector Transit Corridor Project April 9 thru 17 and invites community participation.

The purpose of the meetings will be to present details on Metro's new fully underground build alternative underneath the Little Tokyo/Arts District, detail the benefits of the various alternatives studied and provide an updated schedule for completion and review of the project's Draft Environmental Impact Statement/Report.

The content presented at these meetings will be identical, so those attending a session should seek a time and location most convenient for them.

The Regional Connector project proposes building a nearly two-mile transit line that would connect the existing Metro Gold Line Eastside Extension in the vicinity of the Little Tokyo/Arts District Station with the 7th Street/Metro Center Station, terminus for the Metro Blue Line and future Expo Line.
