Yesterday's vote approving a route for the 9 1/2 mile Westside Subway Extension was historic, but there's still a lot of work to do and a few questions to be answered. Following the news, Metro put together this map (above) detailing the route and portions where decisions still have to be made.

The approval put the project into its final environmental review period where the route is fully vetted before engineering, and then breaking ground, can happen. Decisions still to be made are where to exactly put the stations on the three most western stops: Westwood/V.A. Hospital (it's not actually in Westwood, though), Westwood/UCLA and Century City.
