Motion by Supervisor Mark Ridley-ThomasMeasure R Project Delivery CommitteeApril 21, 2011Crenshaw/LAX Transit Corridor: Leimert Park/Vernon Station andUndergrounding Park Mesa Heights
The Crenshaw/LAX Transit Corridor project is the first major transit project managed byMetro to be financed primarily by the half cent sales tax on purchases in Los AngelesCounty (Measure R). Upon completion, it will serve all County residents by providing arail transit connection to Los Angeles International Airport. Voters along the Corridorwere among the strongest constituencies to vote in support of this tax.In public meetings conducted by Metro, the residents of View Park, Leimert Park andPark Mesa Heights strongly favored two design elements: undergrounding the segmentof the alignment from 48
th
to 59
th
Streets within the City of Los Angeles and including aLeimert Park Station at the intersection of Vernon Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard toservice this historic neighborhood.A Metro study (Park Mesa Heights Grade Separation Analysis, June 2010) concludedthat a below grade alignment would:1) Improve travel time for
all 
passengers to LAX airport;2) Increase ridership on the line by 700 passengers per day, a 4% increase;3) Reduce potential safety concerns at schools and other sensitive uses;4) Minimize disruption to local businesses; and5) Prevent gridlock on surface streets.Inclusion of these two design elements is critical to ensure that this Measure R project isbuilt in a manner that is both responsive to community concerns and does not miss anopportunity to serve some of the most historic neighborhoods in the region.
