Community Meetings to Discuss Start of Van Nuys Corridor Rapidway Environmental Clearance

SAN FERNANDO VALLEY, CA — Metro, in cooperation with the City of Los Angeles, will hold three community workshops in late October to inform the public about the start of a study that will identify options for improving transit service along the Van Nuys Boulevard corridor in the San Fernando Valley. The community meetings will provide the public with background information on the beginning of the Van Nuys Corridor Rapidway Study and allow public input on various ways to better connect the corridor to the regional transportation network.Metro

The Van Nuys Rapidway study area extends from Ventura Boulevard north to the I-210 freeway. Initial alternatives under consideration as part of the beginning of the Alternative Analysis (AA) include Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), Light Rail Transit (LRT), Streetcar, a “No Build” alternative and a Transportation Systems Management (TSM) alternative aimed at better managing the flow of traffic along the corridor. Measure R, the half-cent sales tax approved by the voters of LA County in 2008 earmarks $68.5 million for the East San Fernando Valley North-South Rapidways that includes the Van Nuys corridor. Three other corridors, Sepulveda, Lankershim/San Fernando and Reseda, are being studied through a separate environmental process.

The community workshop meetings will take place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the following locations: • Monday, October 24, 2011 at Panorama High School, 8015 Van Nuys Blvd., Panorama. • Tuesday, October 25, 2011 at Pacoima Neighborhood City Hall, 13520 Van Nuys Blvd., Suite # 209, Pacoima. • Wednesday, October 26, 2011 at Van Nuys Civic Center, Marvin Braude Constituent Service Center, Room 1B, Van Nuys.
