Please approve the contract to start the Crenshaw North EIR to get this critical, regional project shovel-ready as soon as possible.

Crenshaw North will leverage existing transit investments by tying together the Metro Expo, Purple, Red, and Green Lines to generate over 90,000 daily riders—more than any light rail project in the U.S.

Together with Crenshaw South (under construction), Crenshaw North will connect the South Bay, Inglewood, SoFi Stadium, and LAX to major destinations in Central LA, West Hollywood, and Hollywood such as: LACMA, the Original Farmers Market, the Grove, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, the West Hollywood Rainbow District, and the Hollywood Bowl, among others.

The Northern Extension will fulfill an unmet promise of Measure R to connect the Crenshaw and Expo Lines to the Purple Line. Closing this gap will eliminate the need for countless riders to travel Downtown to transfer, improve access to healthcare, increase opportunities for historically underserved communities, reduce congestion and pollution, improve transit competitiveness, and, when the current crisis has abated, promote car-free tourism across the region. 

In short, Crenshaw North will unlock a one-seat ride to the heart of the City giving Angelenos across the region easy access to job opportunities, monumental sporting and entertainment events, and quality healthcare providers.

I support the Crenshaw/LAX Northern Extension. Let’s “Finish the Line!”
