The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (L.A. Metro) yesterday began a 45-day scoping period for the Crenshaw Northern Extension (CNE) project.

Three upcoming virtual scoping meetings are planned to gather public input on what to study during the project's upcoming draft environmental impact report.

The Crenshaw/LAX Line now under construction will end at the E Line (Expo) Station at Crenshaw and Exposition boulevards. The Crenshaw Northern Extension project will extend the Crenshaw/LAX Line north to the D (Purple) Line and continue to the B (Red) Line at the Hollywood/Highland station, with a potential last station at the Hollywood Bowl, according to a news release.

The scoping period concludes May 28. The meetings will provide an overview of the project, describe the environmental study process and solicit comments on the proposed routes from residents, communities, businesses, cities and stakeholders.

Virtual scoping meetings will be held on April 29, May 6 and May 8.

The three routes under study would follow busy travel corridors, serve major destinations and employment centers and create more connectivity in L.A. Metro’s rail and bus network by linking four rail lines and five of the busiest bus routes in L.A. County, according to the release. Two routes would follow San Vicente Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue, with one providing additional access west of Fairfax Avenue. The third route would mostly follow La Brea Avenue.
