Final Report on Regional Connector Arrives Next Week

New, 12 comments

The final environmental impact report for the Regional Connector light rail will be released on January 20, Metro's The Source blog announced today. After that, there will be a month of public comment--including two community open houses in February--before Metro's board votes to approve the project and move it toward final engineering. Construction could start next year on the two-mile, fully underground line that will link the Blue, Expo, and Gold Lines (one way seats from Santa Monica to East LA and Long Beach to the San Gabriel Valley) and create three new Downtown stations by around 2018.
