L.A. MTA to review Eastside Corridor options with the public


Later this month, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LACMTA) will hold four community scoping meetings to review two alternatives for the Eastside Transit Corridor Phase 2 project.

The agency is considering plans to build a light-rail line or improve bus services along the corridor. LACMTA also is weighing a no-build alternative.

The scoping meetings are the first step in preparing a draft environmental impact statement/report. During the meetings, agency officials will review the proposed project and obtain input on the alternatives, as well as the evaluation process used to identify and mitigate environmental impacts.

Since 2007, LACMTA has analyzed alternatives and prepared supplemental technical studies to identify feasible routes to extend the Metro Gold Line Eastside Corridor to cities farther east of L.A.
