Metro's Plan: It's Realistic, But Not Visionary


Metro’s Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP)

Metro’s Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), which was just released this morning, takes a look ahead about 20-25 years down the road to determine what the county’s residents will need in terms of transportation options to get around the county. It covers public transportation, some biking, highways and goods movement.

The above map is the shows a basic highway and public transportation vision, funded and unfunded and we just took a quick look.

As you can see, the public’s support of both a subway down Wilshire and down Santa Monica Blvd. did not even make the unfunded part. It’s as if the decision has already been made to solely run it down Wilshire. Nor does the map indicate even a bus lane or expanded service over the Sepulveda Pass on the 405 freeway. However, it does appear that the Red Line has plans to march north beyond the NoHo Arts District and the Valley will get a few more north-south Orange Line extensions. Of course, this plan is very broad and details and questions can be asked during a series of meetings that begin at the end of his month. More to come…
