Metro's Westside Extension Transit Corridor Study Area covers approximately 38 square miles. Download a larger PDF of this map.

Last October, Metro held early scoping meetings for a study to help guide the development of alternatives addressing the growing traffic and congestion in a 38 square mile study area (see lighter colored area above). Nearly 500 individuals attended these meetings and over 450 formal comments were submitted by the close of the comment period (LAist got theirs in, did you?).

Now that Metro has reviewed all public comments, they have developed a number of alternatives for further analysis including various modes, alignments and station locations. These upcoming meetings will update the public about the results of the scoping process, the emerging alternatives, and next steps in the study’s progress. How it will include bicycles, is the monorail idea trashed and more developments on the possibility of a West Hollywood extension instead of a full Wilshire Blvd. one may be all talked about. Or maybe not. What does our traffic future hold?
