Public comment period begins for Sepulveda Transit Corridor environmental study
Metro is beginning the environmental review phase for the Sepulveda Transit Corridor project, which will build a heavy rail line or monorail between the San Fernando Valley and the Westside. A second phase will eventually be built to LAX.
As part of the environmental review, a formal public comment period will begin today, November 30, and will run through February 11, 2022. Metro encourages the public to submit comments on the project during this time — including any thoughts on the six alternatives under study and issues that Metro should consider during the environmental review.

The Chinatown Los Angeles State Historic Park (LASHP) Community Pedestrian & Bicycle Safety Training (CPBST) workshop was held both virtually and in-person at the LASHP Welcome Center. It convened 11 in-person and 10 virtual participants on Tuesday, August 31 2021, including residents, as well as representatives from Asian Pacific Islander Forward Movement and Los Angeles Bicycle Coalition. LASHP requested that the Project Team conduct a CPBST in Chinatown with the goals to:
1. Improve safe access to the Los Angeles State Historic Park for all residents; and,
2. Improve walkability and bikeability on streets around the state park community.
The following report summarizes the outcomes of the workshop and provides community and Project Team recommendations for continued guidance in project and program implementation.

The move will close a gap in the 14-mile east-west bicycling network.
