Issue
ISSUE

The I-710 South Corridor Project is approaching a major milestone, the recirculation of the draft environmental document, in June 2017. The Project alternatives have been revised to reflect community and agency input received during the first circulation of the draft environmental document in 2012 and Metro Board Motion 22.1 (2015), which added primarily non-freeway improvements to the Project and several mitigation and policy considerations. The Project Team has included all scope elements added by Motion 22.1 in the revised Project description and completed all the additional technical evaluations required. Mitigations and policy considerations contained in the Motion will be evaluated in future Project phases as appropriate. Staff is currently establishing the channels by which these elements will be addressed.

Upon completion of the public circulation period, the Project Team will develop a recommendation on a Preferred Alternative and an Initial Phasing Plan. These recommendations will be based on community input, funding availability, and a robust technical analysis of the costs and benefits of each alternative. The recommendations will be vetted through the I-710 advisory committees before being brought to the Metro Board in January 2018. Staff anticipates completing the Final EIR/EIS by summer 2018. In anticipation of potential funding opportunities, staff has developed a series of "early action" project concepts which have been included in Metro's Measure M Expenditure Plan.
