Updates on the SR2 Terminus Project at Thursday’s meeting

Meeting reminder: Updates on the SR2 Freeway Terminus

Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) will present an update of their activities on the SR2/Glendale Freeway Terminus Project at the Thursday, April 5, 2012, meeting of the Echo Park Improvement Association (EPIA).  It has been 18 months since Metro last informed the community of its actions.

Although members of Echo Park Community Action Committee (EPCAC) and the EPIA were in touch with Council President Garcetti’s office, Congressman Becerra’s office, and Supervisor Molina’s office in 2011 for help in getting new information about Metro’s “hybrid” design for the Terminus Project. Metro provided little information, nor did community-led petitioning efforts draw any response from Metro.

Petitions were signed by numerous residents and business people opposing Metro’s plan to do away with street parking on the west side of Glendale Boulevard south of the “flyover” off-ramp. Petitions were also signed opposing the sound wall proposal for the southern end of the Terminus, and more were signed in opposition to the planned deletion of a left-turn lane from the off-ramp on the east side of Glendale Boulevard.

We urge to you attend this meeting to find out what, exactly, Metro has to say.

Join us for our regularly scheduled town hall on Thursday, April 5 at Barlow Hospital at 7:00 pm.
