Metro to Talk Construction Process, Impacts of Westside Subway at Next Set of Public Meetings
Plans for Metro's extended Purple Line subway call for seven stations dotted mostly along Wilshire Boulevard through Los Angeles and Beverly Hills. If the project gets the go-ahead, that means construction.
While that will not beget a nine-mile construction site extending from Koreatown to Westwood, there will be some realities the public will face during construction, namely the effects of building stations at several intersections.
Metro is currently amidst its one-year final environmental review of project, which includes frequent updates to the public that will next come in the form of three meetings in late January. "We really want people to start focusing on what it is going to take to get this thing built," explained Jody Litvak of Metro.
The meetings, which always provide background on the $5.34 billion project, will focus on the construction process and impacts, as well as soliciting public comment. What will not be discussed in detail, however, are final recommendations for much discussed and argued-over station locations in Century City and Westwood.
