About 50 people attended last week's meeting to discuss the $1 billion Crenshaw Corridor
, a high-capacity transit system within a 10.5-mile corridor from Wilshire Boulevard south to El Segundo Boulevard, near the Los Angeles Airport.
Metro Project Manager Roderick Diaz presented transit options for Crenshaw Corridor
KPCC stated the light rail alternative would move people faster and would create twice as many jobs
as new rapid bus routes. But it would cost twice as much as to build. Most people in attendance preferred light rail.
Karen Ceasar of Leimert Park: I don’t’ care what they do as long as it’s underground. It can’t inconvenience the people, the elderly who try to cross, the children, trying to hear when you’re trying to teach. It can’t happen.
The new Crenshaw Corridor line could potentially connect the Metro Green Line and LA International Airport in the South to the Expo Line and possibly Wilshire Boulevard in the North.
