Imagine not worrying about getting stuck in traffic going to work, school, play or even routine errands. No frazzled nerves. No hunting for shortcuts. No Sig alerts. No standard excuse for being late. You can get where you want to go, when you want to get there anywhere in sprawling Los Angeles County.
You can make it happen. You’re already taking the first step by seeking more information about traffic congestion and what can be done about it. You now know that Metro has a plan to handle the county’s mobility needs today through the year 2030.
The Draft Long Range Transportation Plan prioritizes dozens of new highway and public transit projects in virtually every corner of Los Angeles County. Freeway gap closures, construction of carpool lanes, interchange improvements and truck lanes would complement new public transit projects including busways, freeway express service, and rail lines to handle the county’s population and job growth through the year 2030.
Metro welcomes your input on this plan and any ideas you have for achieving the goal of hassle-free mobility. Community meetings are held frequently and you can even chat on the Internet with Metro Board Chair Pam O’Connor. Look to metro.net/imagine for more information about Pam’s monthly live chats.
