Subway Extension Heading to Full Metro Board Next Week

New, 19 comments

The proposed Purple Line extension to Westwood (and possibly beyond with federal funds) is heading to Metro's full board a week from tomorrow, reports project spokeswoman Jody Litvak on her Facebook page. The decision was made at today's subway committee meeting. Next week's Board meeting will probably be the first unveiling of the suggested route, and if the Board gives the green-light, the EIR and EIS (environmental impact review/statement) can go forward; one of the last steps before construction. The EIR step is about a two-year ordeal, though Schwarzenegger has been pushing to hasten the EIR process in the building of new freeways, so who knows for sure. [Metro]
