Our project management, our contractor, Walsh-Shea Corridor Constructors, and all crew members have been diligently working to deliver our community a safe and efficient project. Since our last newsletter in June, we performed two clearance testing operations. Our test trains have safely been powered along 5-miles of the total 8.5-mile alignment and cleared 4 of the 8 future stations. We now have two train cars in the tunnel below Crenshaw Bl soon to begin testing. This newsletter will also highlight the delivery of Kinkisharyo P3010 train cars that have been delivered to our Southwestern Yard Maintenance Facility. The delivery process is very detailed and carried out with caution to ensure the new train cars are safely able to be transferred onto the facility's tracks.
We invite you to join us at our upcoming virtual meeting to get the latest progress updates. Save the date for the September virtual construction update community meeting: Wednesday, September 23, from 6 pm to 7:30 pm.
With group events and public gatherings currently on hold, it’s more important than ever to find new ways to stay connected. That’s why Metro began a series of “Community Conversations,” which are online meetings hosted by community leaders to help us learn the histories, art, activism, and cultural assets of the neighborhoods that shape Los Angeles County.
Please join us for a Community Conversation with three community leaders who represent a variety of South LA neighborhoods to take place 12 pm - 1 pm on Tuesday, August 25th.
We'd like to share a new job opportunity with you! We are hiring a small group of people to be operators and help us launch a shared ride, a new mobility service known as MicroTransit!
MicroTransit is an on-demand rideshare service offering short trips within Los Angeles County in vehicles that hold up to 10 customers, within six service zones across the County.
These job openings provide a first-of-its-kind opportunity to join an entirely new mobility service at Metro as a full - or part-time employee with benefits, including healthcare. Metro is specifically looking for highly motivated and customer-service oriented individuals with experience at private transportation ride-hailing companies. Metro will accept applications for these positions through September 2nd, 2020.
The Metro Board of Directors this month will consider advancing three possible routes for the Crenshaw Northern Extension project, as well as a $50.3-million contract for environmental analysis and advanced conceptual engineering of the project. The Crenshaw Northern Extension would continue the Crenshaw/LAX Line to the north to a transfer point with the Purple Line subway and then continue to the Red Line subway in Hollywood.
Get the latest details on the construction progress alignment-wide. We will showcase the latest construction milestones and will have Metro's Art Department present on the art installation progress at our eight stations.
August Service Councils and NextGen Bus Plan public hearings will meet virtually. For August meetings, all Councils will receive a regional performance report; the Councils will also each convene a public hearing to hear from the public regarding the NextGen Bus Plan.
The Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project and neighboring communities are served by the Westside/Central Service Council, which is meeting on August 26th. and South Bay Service Council, which is meeting on August 20th.
