The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) will host three community open house meetings for the K Line Northern Extension Project to provide the public with project updates. Metro invites community members and stakeholders to participate in either in-person or virtual open house sessions scheduled for September 19, 23, and 26.
The K Line Northern Extension will extend the existing K Line light rail line north to the D Line (Purple) subway on Wilshire Boulevard and then continue to the B Line (Red) subway in Hollywood. The three routes under study follow busy travel corridors, serve major destinations and employment centers and intersect with five of the busiest bus routes in the region. The routes will follow parts of San Vicente Boulevard, Fairfax Avenue or La Brea Avenue. Metro is currently drafting the project’s Environmental Impact Report (EIR).
The open houses will be held on the following dates and times:
Virtual Open House:
Tuesday, September 19, 2023, Noon to 1:30 p.m., Zoom link: ttps://us02web.zoom.us/j/87336933668
