Regional Connector Render: 2nd Street Looking West Metro

If you aren't up to speed on Metro's Regional Connector project, it's your own fault. The transit agency has held round after round of community meetings in the two and a half years since the project officially kicked off as a corridor study, another of which starts today at the Central Library.

The $700 - $900 million project would construct a link between the Blue and Expo lines at 7th/Metro and the Gold Line and Gold Line Eastside Extension in Little Tokyo. It would allow trains to run through Downtown and across the network, making possible routings like East L.A. to Culver City or Pasadena to Long Beach.

For the current round of meetings, Metro is highlighting the underground option that was first presented in November and formally added to the project's environmental process in February.

Meeting start at noon at the Central Library, and then take place Wednesday, April 14, at the Japanese American National Museum (369 E. 1st; 2pm and 6:30pm) and Saturday, April 17, at the Los Angeles Theatre Center (514 S. Spring; 11am).
