Los Angeles MTA to outline alternatives for Harbor Subdivision corridor


During the next month, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LACMTA) will hold five meetings to update the public on an alternatives analysis study being conducted for the Harbor Subdivision Transit Corridor.

Launched in September 2008, the study examines potential transit service options along a 26-mile freight corridor that runs across southwest Los Angeles County from Vernon to Wilmington. LACMTA purchased a portion of the corridor between Redondo Junction and Watson Yard in the early 1990s. Now, the agency is considering the addition of light-rail or bus rapid transit service along the line.  

Along with a planned Crenshaw Transit Corridor, the Harbor Subdivision would establish a north-south link connecting downtown L.A. to Los Angeles International Airport and potential South Bay area destinations.
