  • 5. Multiple venues for participation> All Communities Convening> Community Liaison Councils> Stakeholder Outreach Advisory Committee> Variety of participation opportunities: > Roundtables > Workshops > Focus Groups > Virtual meetings > Open Houses
  • 6. Public Participation –Environmental Review Process We are here
  • 7. Project Background> Two-thirds of LA County voters approve using Measure R funds to address congestion> Unresolved SR-710 option contributes to growing congestion on nearby freeways and streets
  • 8. Environmental Review ProcessOverview
  • 9. Robust project scoping completed> March 2011 – Notice of Intent and Notice of Preparation were published> March 2011 – Agency scoping meeting was held> March/April, 2011 – Eight (8) public scoping meetings were held at various locations within the project study area> March 2011 – A virtual scoping meeting was held> September 2011 – Scoping Summary Report completed
  • 10. What we heard during Scoping> Keep all modal options on the table: > Traffic Systems Management/Traffic Demand Management low build > Surface, subsurface and elevated structures > Transit (bus and rail options) > Street improvements > Freight management systems > Supporting advanced technologies > No build
  • 11. More on what we heard> Consider the following issues: > Traffic > Natural > Engineering > Archeological > Social > Health > Aesthetic > Air Quality > Economic > Noise > Cultural > Environmental Justice
  • 12. More on what we heard> Define project need and study area> Consider local and regional planning impacts> Conduct cost/benefit analyses> Continue public participation
  • 13. Post Scoping - Initial Study Area

  • 15. Alternatives Analysis Process
  • 16. Study Decision-Making Metro,Study Team Stakeholders Caltrans & Federal Agencies Study & Inform & Input Decide Recommend Advise
  • 17. Four Elements of Need Regional transportation system Area of Influence (north-south mobility) Freeway system efficiency Congestion on local Study Area streets Transit system efficiency
  • 18. Regional Transportation System> Regional travel speeds are low> Delay is high> Travel times are unpredictable
  • 19. Freeway System> Over-capacity north-south travel demands affects mobility> High delays and unpredictable travel times on study area freeways> High accident rates on freeways
  • 20. Local Street System> Affected by excess freeway traffic> Operates at low speeds> Out-of-place freeway trips cause high levels of congestion
  • 21. Transit System> Operational deficiencies> Low travel speeds for buses> North-south transit network is constrained
  • 22. Next Steps> Develop, analyze and screen initial alternatives> Continue conceptual engineering and technical analyses> Recommend final set of alternatives – Fall 2012> Continue public participation
