METRO held one of two community meetings regarding the Sepulveda Transit Corridor Project. The meeting is in METRO’s “Feasibility Phase” of the planning process that includes public outreach. METRO presented their “refined concepts" for the system and all four concepts include tunneling beneath Bel-Air to reach stations that are currently planned for the UCLA campus and another in Westwood. This phase is called “Section 3.”

The second meeting will be held on Saturday, February 2, 2019, 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM, at the Marvin Braude Constituent Service Center, 6262 Van Nuys Blvd., Van Nuys, CA 91401.

Bel-Air residents with concerns about the tunneling should attend these meetings. The next Community Meeting to specifically discuss “Section 3” of the Purple Line will be on March 21, 2019, 6:30 PM - 8 PM, at the Belmont Village Senior Living, 10475 Wilshire Blvd, LA 90024.
