Public Feedback Sought On Crenshaw Corridor Plan

The public will have an opportunity to help plan the future of the Crenshaw-South Bay Transit Corridor at upcoming meetings scheduled over the next several weeks.

Metro is currently looking at two options for the project: light-rail Transit (LRT) and bus rapid transit (BRT).

The LRT alternative calls for building an 8.5-mile line featuring seven stations plus an option for one more. The base cost is estimated at $1.3 billion; various design options would add between $11 million to $255 million to the cost. The BRT alternative calls for establishing a 12-mile system with eight stations estimated to cost between $500 million to $600 million. Funding for either project would come from Measure R, California’s half-cent sales tax measure approved by voters last year.
