Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) is evaluating a potential new light rail transit system connecting southeast Los Angeles County to downtown Los Angeles via the abandoned Pacific Electric Right-of-Way/West Santa Ana Branch Corridor, a combination of local streets, and private and Metro-owned rail right of way. The project will serve commuters in a high travel demand corridor, connect to multiple Metro transit lines and increase transit options for the southeast county border cities and downtown Los Angeles.
- AA is leading the outreach efforts and has coordinated over 20 public meetings and 80 community events to provide targeted outreach to all project corridor communities, which included trilingual outreach materials – English, Spanish, and Japanese.
- AA is supporting Metro’s Marketing Department in the development of all printed project materials and is responsible for the development of all digital noticing for the project.
- AA developed interactive GIS maps of the project corridor for use at public meetings and coordination of public notification efforts.
- AA led the efforts to develop and complete eight Metro Expo and Gold Line tours to provide elected representatives and corridor stakeholders the opportunity to see potential features of the new line.
- AA is supporting Metro to develop video simulations of the corridor and station areas.
