Issue
ISSUE

In December 2018 the Metro Board approved the initiation of an engineering and environmental study to support development of the Centinela Grade Separation (Item #2018-0245). The study has been conducted in cooperation with the City of Inglewood and has included the development of 15% design and a Funding and Delivery Strategy Plan for the project.

Board approval is needed to approve funding to advance engineering design to include the preparation of construction bid documents. Approval of a funding plan is needed to support final design and construction activities for the grade separation with minimal impacts to the construction, opening and operation of the Crenshaw/LAX (CLAX) LRT Project.

Background
BACKGROUND

History
The Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR) for CLAX
was completed in 2011. Applying Metro's Grade Crossing Policy in 2011 resulted in a
determination that an at-grade crossing application was appropriate. In 2013 the
California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) granted approval of the at-grade crossing
pending inclusion of several supplemental measures intended to improve safety and
increase queuing and traffic capacity. The final...
