Los Angeles Officials Want Rail to Link Three Light-Rail Lines
Sat June 07, 2008 - West Edition Construction Equipment Guide
LOS ANGELES (AP) Transportation leaders want a 1.6-mi. (2.5 km) downtown Los Angeles rail system to link the area’s three light-rail lines.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s proposal for a Gold, Blue and Expo line is being reviewed during public meetings. After examining public comments, the MTA staff will make a recommendation this summer.
MTA chief of countywide planning and development Diego Cardoso said funding for the regional connector hasn’t been earmarked.
The downtown rail link will run above or below ground, stretching from the future Gold Line extension in Little Tokyo to the Blue Line’s Flower Street station. The 8.6-mi, (13.8 km) Expo Line now under construction ends at the Flower Street station.
