West Central Corridor

Los Angeles, California

(November 1996)

Description The West Central Corridor extends from the proposed Pico/San Vicente station on the Metro Rail Red Line to Westwood near the University of California at Los Angeles campus, a distance of approximately seven miles. This alternative is currently assumed to be entirely in subway and is estimated to cost about $3.0 billion (escalated dollars).

Status FTA approved the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority's request to initiate alternatives analysis in July 1991. The study is currently on hold until the alignment of the Mid City segment of the Red Line is determined (see MOS-3 profile). The Major Investment Study will further explore the Metro Rail extension alternative and other alternatives.

Congress has not appropriated any funds for this corridor.
