Planning for a Sorely Needed Subway

CM | 1.25

Activity Code: S672

Room: Crystal A

Metro’s nine-mile Westside Subway Extension has been an integral element of local, regional, and federal transportation planning in Los Angeles since the early 1980s. This session examines what went into planning below-grade heavy rail transit in one of the most congested areas of the country. Trace the history of the project, find out how it is being funded, and learn about the immense engineering and design challenges project leaders face in bringing it to fruition.
