County transportation officials Wednesday announced two virtual meetings to get public opinion on the proposed Arts District/Sixth Street Station as they begin the Environmental Impact Report process for the project.
The station, which will serve the Metro B (Red) and D (Purple) lines, will be bound by the Sixth Street Bridge on its north side, Seventh Street on its south side, the Los Angeles River on its east side and Mesquit Street on its west side.
The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority is reviewing the best way to get people to and from the station, and is anticipating the access point to be placed from the north side. Officials will also explore providing access to the station from Mesquit Street and Santa Fe Avenue, the future Sixth Street Park and the future L.A. River Path Project.
Two virtual meetings will be held in April to solicit feedback from the public on the scope and content of the Environmental Impact Report, and potential effects the project will have on the environment.
The first meeting is Wednesday, April 14 from 5-7 p.m. People can access it by visiting bit.ly/3bEuF24 and using the passcode 358321.
The second meeting is April 17 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. People can access it by visiting bit.ly/3bEioL5 and using the passcode 535774.
Spanish and Japanese interpretation and closed captioning will be available during each meeting. Other translations and Americans with Disability Act accommodations are available by calling 213-326-1787 or California Relay Service at 711 at least 72 hours before the meeting.
People can also submit written comments regarding the EIR, the project area and description, impacts of the project and methodologies used in the evaluation until May 12.
