A. Overview and Schedule
Section 1. Executive Summary

The 2018 Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP) for Los Angeles County
satisfies the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) requirements for an urbanized
county. The RTIP is a listing of state highway and transit projects that Los Angeles County
proposes for funding through the 2018 STIP covering the five-year period from Fiscal Year
2018/2019 to 2022/2023. The primary purpose of the RTIP is to help implement the 2009 Long
Range Transportation Plan and the Southern California Association of Government’s adopted
Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy.

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), as the County
Transportation Commission for Los Angeles County, is responsible for developing the county’s
funding priorities for the STIP, and for submitting the projects to the California Transportation
Commission (CTC) by way of the RTIP.

On August 16, 2017, the CTC adopted the 2018 STIP Fund Estimate (Fund Estimate).
According to the Fund Estimate there is sufficient capacity to restore the $754 million in
statewide deletions that resulted from the negative Fund Estimate for the 2016 STIP. In
addition, the Fund Estimate indicates that there is also $1.5 billion for the regions and the state
to program additional projects, as well as $335 million in capacity to fund Advanced Project
Development Element (APDE) work through the 2018 STIP period.

Consistent with STIP priorities, Metro has reprogrammed prior 2016 deletions and has
introduced a modally balanced program of new projects proposed for the 2018 STIP. Table 1 on
the following page summarizes our 2018 RTIP submittal.

2018 Los Angeles County Regional Transportation Improvement Program 3


Section 3. Background of Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP)

A. What is the Regional Transportation Improvement Program?

The Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP) is a program of highway, local road,
transit and active transportation projects that a region plans to fund with State and Federal
revenue programmed by the California Transportation Commission in the State Transportation
Improvement Program (STIP). The RTIP is developed biennially by the regions and is due to
the Commission by December 15 of every odd numbered year. The program of projects in the
RTIP is a subset of projects in the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), a federally mandated
master transportation plan which guides a region’s transportation investments over a 20 to 25
year period. The RTP is based on all reasonably anticipated funding, including federal, state
and local sources. Updated every 4 to 5 years, the RTP is developed through an extensive
public participation process in the region and reflects the unique mobility, sustainability, and air
quality needs of each region.

B. Regional Agency’s Historical and Current Approach to developing the RTIP

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) develops the biennial
RTIP based on the projects identified in the 2009 Long Range Transportation Plan, 2014 Short
Range Transportation Plan, Metro’s Measure R and Measure M Expenditure Plans and the
Southern California Association of Governments 2016 Regional Transportation
Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy. Additionally, Metro coordinates with Caltrans District 7
as well as our local agency partners for identifying projects to be submitted in the RTIP.
Further, for the 2018 RTIP, Metro employed the Metro Board-adopted Evaluative Criteria
Framework to develop the program of projects proposed. All of the projects submitted in the
RTIP from Los Angeles County have gone through thorough analysis and public outreach.

Section 4. Completion of Prior RTIP Projects (Required per Section 68)

Per Section 68 of the STIP Guidelines, reporting is required on RIP-funded projects completed
since the last RTIP adoption. Project completion is defined as construction contract acceptance.
Since the 2016 RTIP adoption, no RIP-funded projects have reached the milestone of
construction contract acceptance, and therefore there is nothing to report at this time.

B. Public Participation/Project Selection Process

As noted in Section 3A, Metro selects projects which are identified in the 2009 Long Range
Transportation Plan, 2014 Short Range Transportation Plan, Metro’s Measure R and Measure
M Expenditure Plans and the Southern California Association of Governments Regional
Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy. Each one of these planning documents
features extensive public outreach and involvement.

In terms of Metro’s public outreach and involvement, Metro has undertaken several initiatives to
ensure the projects submitted in the RTIP have received the proper public vetting and meet the
needs of the residents of Los Angeles County. This section will describe the outreach strategy
for the 2009 Long Range Transportation Plan, the 2014 Short Range Transportation Plan, and
the Measure M Expenditure Plan of 2016 as those are the documents directly developed by
Metro.

2009 LRTP Outreach

Once the Draft 2008 LRTP and its companion Technical Document were released for public
review from March 12 through April 28, 2008, an extensive local outreach process was initiated.
Forty-two outreach meetings were held from February 14 through April 30, 2008. These
meetings covered all nine sub-regional Council of Governments (COG) governing boards and
their respective subcommittees, our Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) and respective
subcommittees, and numerous public and private stakeholders. Seven community meetings
were held across the County between March 26th and the close of the public comment period
on April 23, 2008. Information was widely distributed by Metro’s website, LRTP phone Hotline,
multi-lingual Fact Sheets on buses and trains, cable channels, and radio and newspaper
advertisements. Over 200 comment letters and 1,000 e-mails were received. A response
matrix was included in the June 2008 Board report. Board members received CD’s of all
comment letters and e-mails.

2018 Los Angeles County Regional Transportation Improvement Program 5


Upon consideration of public comments, the Draft 2008 LRTP was submitted for Board action
on June 26, 2008. At this meeting, the Board voted to defer action on the Draft 2008 LRTP until
after the November 2008 General Election outcome of Measure R. The 2009 LRTP was
adopted by the Board on October 22, 2009.

2014 Short Range Transportation Plan - Outreach

The Draft Plan and its companion Technical Document were released for public review in mid-
April, and an extensive local outreach process was initiated. Twenty-seven outreach meetings
were held between April 12 and the close of public comments on June 18, 2014. These
meeting covered all the Subregions and Councils of Governments (COGs), seven community
meetings across the County, Metro’s Technical Advisory Committee and respective
subcommittees, and other public and private stakeholder groups.

In addition to the outreach and involvement performed for the adoption of the 2009 Long Range
Transportation Plan and the 2014 Short Range Transportation Plan, Metro staff also sought
Metro Board adoption of our 2018 RTIP submittal. This process included meetings with the
Metro Technical Advisory Committee, meetings with affected stakeholders, as well as the
standard Metro Board Committee and Board Meeting. The Metro Board adopted the proposed
2018 RTIP submittal in November 2017.

2016 Measure M Expenditure Plan – Outreach

Metro first solicited the transportation priorities and needs as identified by the Subregions, and
these proposals were evaluated based on Board-adopted performance goals of mobility,
economy, accessibility, safety, and sustainability & quality of life. As a result, the draft
expenditure plan was developed and was approved by the Metro Board in March 2016. The
Draft Expenditure Plan was then presented through a broad and an extensive public outreach
process, which included nine community meetings, one virtual community meeting, thirteen
telephone town hall meetings, meetings with stakeholder groups, polling, surveys, and
numerous other engagement efforts. The final Expenditure Plan along with the Measure M
Ordinance language was adopted by the Board in June 2016. In July 2016, the Measure M
Ordinance, inclusive of the Expenditure Plan, was submitted to the Los Angeles County Board
of Supervisors, who approved officially placing the ordinance on the November 6, 2016 ballot at
their August 2016 meeting. On November 6, 2016, Measure M was approved by 71% of LA
County voters.

C. Consultation with Caltrans District (Required per Section 17)

Caltrans District: 7

Metro and Caltrans District 7 have worked closely to develop the 2018 RTIP Submittal for Los
Angeles County. Metro and Caltrans District 7 worked together to restore the previously deleted
Segments 6 and 13 of the SR 138 in order to fully fund these projects through construction.
Additionally, Metro and Caltrans identified RTIP funding to complete the final segment of the SR
138 (Segment 4) and to fund the portion of the SR 71 that was left unfunded after the larger

2018 Los Angeles County Regional Transportation Improvement Program 6


FASTLANE Grant Program was cancelled. Also, Metro and Caltrans worked together to identify
project development needs and together proposed Advanced Planning and Development
Element (APDE) programming for the I-605/I-5 Interchange and the I-605/SR 91 Interchange.
The effort was done with detailed consideration of the current project schedules and needs.
Additionally, Metro is also coordinating with Caltrans District 7 and Caltrans Headquarters to
manage the projects programmed in the Interregional Transportation Improvement Program
(ITIP) located in Los Angeles County. Metro and Caltrans will continue to work together to
deliver the STIP-funded projects in Los Angeles County in the most efficient way possible.

2018 Los Angeles County Regional Transportation Improvement Program 9


Section 8. Interregional Transportation Improvement Program (ITIP) Funding

The purpose of the Interregional Transportation Improvement Program (ITIP) is to improve


interregional mobility for people and goods in the State of California. As an interregional
program, the ITIP is focused on increasing the throughput for highway and rail corridors of
strategic importance outside the urbanized areas of the state. A sound transportation network
between and connecting urbanized areas ports and borders is vital to the state’s economic
vitality. The ITIP is prepared in accordance with Government Code Section 14526, Streets and
Highways Code Section 164 and the STIP Guidelines. The ITIP is a five-year program managed
by Caltrans and funded with 25% of new STIP revenues in each cycle. Developed in
cooperation with regional transportation planning agencies to ensure an integrated
transportation program, the ITIP promotes the goal of improving interregional mobility and
connectivity across California.

The 2018 RTIP for Los Angeles County does not include a request for ITIP funding. However,
Metro supported the Caltrans District 7 ITIP requests, including the $7 million in amended
programming for the Rosecrans Marquardt Grade Separation Project that Caltrans
Headquarters included in their Draft ITIP.

Section 9. Projects Planned Within the Corridor (Required per Section 20e)

Provide a description of the project’s impact on other projects planned or underway within the
corridor as required per Section 20 of the STIP Guidelines.

SR-138 Segments 4, 6, and 13 are the final segments to be completed on the SR-138 Corridor.
Caltrans District 7 is currently constructing the SR-138 Segment 9. This project will provide both
capacity and safety improvements to the corridor. Once completed, SR-138 will have a
consistent number of lanes, reducing weaving movements, as well as additional safety
improvements. Delivering all three segments is critical to improving safety within the corridor.

The East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor will connect with the Metro Orange Line,
providing a North-South high capacity connection. This project along with the Orange Line BRT
Improvement Project planned for FY19 will bring enhanced transit services and connectivity
between the destinations accessed by Van Nuys Boulevard and those along the existing
Orange Line.

2018 Los Angeles County Regional Transportation Improvement Program 10


C. Relationship of RTIP to RTP/SCS/APS and Benefits of RTIP
Section 10. Regional Level Performance Evaluation (per Section 19A of the guidelines)

STIP Guidelines require that RTIPs be modeled to evaluate how the proposed RTIPs further the
goals of the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP). The Southern California Association of
Governments (SCAG) performs this analysis on behalf of Los Angeles County and the other
counties in the SCAG Region. Three projects proposed in Los Angeles County’s RTIP are not
included in this analysis: the two Bus Acquisition projects and the East San Fernando Valley
Transit Corridor. The Bus Acquisition projects were not expected to have outputs that could be
reflected in the model because they are replacement vehicles, and therefore were not included
in SCAG’s model exercise. The East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor project is slated to
have its Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) adopted in January/February 2018. As such, the
project’s mode has not been determined, complicating the ability to model it. However, Sections
13 and 14 include individual project analyses of benefits and costs for the Bus Acquisition
projects and the East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor, as well as for all other projects
proposed herein. Please see pages 12 through 14 and page 17 for the analysis provided by
SCAG in support of the STIP requirement specified in section 19A of the guidelines.

2018 Los Angeles County Regional Transportation Improvement Program 11


Pursuant to the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) guidelines recently adopted
by the California Transportation Commission (Commission), the Southern California Association
of Governments (SCAG) is pleased to submit the requested regional performance evaluation for
SCAG region’s 2018 STIP.

SCAG is the largest Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) in the country and the region is
home to approximately 19 million Californians. SCAG region’s STIP includes several, often
partial projects included in SCAG’s 2016 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP)/Sustainable
Communities Strategies (SCS). The RTP/SCS meets the GHG targets established by the
California Air Resources Board (CARB) pursuant to Senate Bill 375 (SB 375) specific to the
SCAG region. Given these projects are drawn from the conforming RTP/SCS, it is reasonable
to affirm that these STIP projects move the region towards the successful implementation of the
RTP/SCS. Please note the following related to the 2018 STIP‐RTIP:

• The STIP‐RTIP does not include system wide preservation investments. As such, it
does not impact asset conditions on the State Highway System (SHS), local roads, or
transit assets. However, life‐cycle costs are considered in the analysis for the capital
projects proposed by these STIP‐RTIP Submittals.
• This STIP‐RTIP does not include land use strategies and only modest transit and active
transportation investments. Therefore, mode shift impacts are negligible.
• The STIP‐RTIP includes several highway projects, several involving pricing on High
Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes. These projects work best in tandem with SCAG’s RTP/
SCS Travel Demand Management (TDM) strategies. As such, TDM strategies are
included in the analysis.
• The STIP‐RTIP does not include smart land use strategies or other broad based pricing
strategies (mileage based user charges) included in the RTP/SCS. Therefore, impacts
on several measures in the STIP guidelines are not considered (e.g., percent of housing
and jobs within 0.5 miles of transit stops with frequent transit service).

The STIP guidelines list a number of measures to report, depending on available data and
tools. A brief summary of the analysis results for the applicable measures is provided below.

Investment Effectiveness

The 2018 STIP benefit/cost (B/C) analysis for the SCAG region utilizes the Cal‐B/C model to
calculate regional network benefits. It calculates and aggregates scenario benefits after travel
impacts are evaluated using a regional travel demand model. The benefit/cost ratio compares
the incremental benefits with the incremental costs of transportation investments. The benefits
are divided into several categories, including:

• Savings resulting from reduced travel delay;


• Air quality improvements;
• Safety improvements; and
• Reductions in vehicle operating costs

2018 Los Angeles County Regional Transportation Improvement Program 12


For these categories, SCAG’s travel demand model results are used to estimate the benefits of
the 2018 STIP Build planning scenario compared with the No Build planning scenario. Model
data for the 2018 STIP were summarized in one mile per hour (1‐mph) speed bins to facilitate
analysis. Consistent with the overall STIP performance evaluation, benefits associated with
SCAG’s 2016 RTP/SCS TDM strategies are reflected in the analysis. Most of these benefits
are a function of changes in Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) and Vehicle Hours Traveled (VHT).
Costs included in the analysis reflect estimates of lifecycle costs including capital and
ongoing operations and maintenance costs. The 2018 STIP provides a regional network‐level
benefit/cost ratio of 4.01. Benefits and costs are estimated over the planning period from 2016
through 2040.

3 INVESTMENT ANALYSIS
SUMMARY RESULTS

Total Over Average


Life-Cycle Costs (mil. $) $602.9 ITEMIZED BENEFITS (mil. $) 20 Years Annual
Life-Cycle Benefits (mil. $) $2,419.7 Travel Time Savings $2,516.4 $125.8
Net Present Value (mil. $) $1,816.8 Veh. Op. Cost Savings -$366.3 -$18.3
Accident Cost Savings $188.9 $9.4
Benefit / Cost Ratio: 4.01 Emission Cost Savings $80.7 $4.0
TOTAL BENEFITS $2,419.7 $121.0
Rate of Return on Investment: N/A

Payback Period: N/A

Please note that a regional travel demand model may not be as sensitive to individual project‐
level impacts. As such, this analysis is not necessarily comparable to the project‐
level assessments as the regional evaluation accounts for the complementary or duplicative
benefits of combinations of projects with the scenarios modeled externally using SCAG’s
regional travel demand model.

VMT per Capita

Impacts are projected to increase VMT per capita by 0.019 miles per day, which is less than
one‐tenth of a percent.

Percent of congested VMT at or below 35 mph

Impacts are projected to reduce congested VMT by 3.0 percent.

Commute mode share (travel to work or school)

Impacts are expected to reduce the percentage of drive alone trips to work by 0.04% with no
increase in drive alone trips to colleges or universities.

Asset Conditions (State Highway and Local Streets)

2018 Los Angeles County Regional Transportation Improvement Program 13


Based on the 2013 Pavement Condition Survey, almost 20 percent of the State Highway
System (SHS) lane miles are in some form of distress (i.e., major distress, minor distress, or
poor ride). The average Pavement Condition Index (PCI) for the region’s local roads is 69.
The STIP does not impact asset conditions in this cycle.

Percent of transit assets that have surpassed the FTA useful life period

Not applicable

Highway Buffer Index (the extra time cushion that most travelers add to their average
travel time when planning trips to ensure on‐time arrival)

The full implementation of the region’s STIP projects will improve travel time reliability since
HOT lane implementations have been shown to improve overall travel time reliability.
However, it is not possible to estimate these impacts with current tools.

Fatalities

SCAG’s analysis projects that fatalities per million persons per day will decline from 0.26 to
0.25 and injuries will be reduced from 13.06 to 12.96 per million persons per day.

Fatalities and injuries per million VMT will remain relatively unchanged at 0.01 and 0.53
respectively.

Percent of housing and jobs within 0.5 miles of transit stops with frequent transit
service

Impacts are projected to increase the percentage of housing within 0.5 miles of frequent transit
service area by 0.07%. The percentage of jobs within 0.5 miles are projected to increase
0.38%.

Mean commute travel time (to work or school)

Impacts are projected to reduce mean work commute travel time by 0.05 minutes for
automobiles and increase mean work commute time by transit by 0.03 minutes for transit.
Impacts are also projected to increase mean school commute travel times by 0.01 minutes for
automobiles and by 0.05 minutes for transit.

Change in acres of agricultural land

Not applicable

GHG Impacts

Impacts are not projected to change daily CO2 emissions/capita.

The table on the next page summarizes the performance measures results as suggested by
the RTP guidelines. Note that the table compares future conditions, as opposed to comparing
to current condition, without the STIP‐RTIP against future conditions with the STIP‐RTIP. This
allows for isolating the impacts of the STIP‐RTIP without taking credit for other developments,
such as improved fuel efficiencies or smart land use strategies.

2018 Los Angeles County Regional Transportation Improvement Program 14


Section 11. Regional and Statewide Benefits of RTIP

The projects proposed for the 2018 RTIP provide substantial benefits to California and Los
Angeles County. The SR-138 is primarily designed to improve safety and address projected
growth in flow of goods and services through this area. The existing SR-138 has
experienced several serious accidents and is above the statewide average rate of fatalities.
Between 2012 and 2015, the route experienced 13 deaths and 87 injuries. Therefore, safety is
the strongest goal for this project. The widening of this corridor will not only improve safety but
increase capacity. The forecasted average daily trips (ADT) with the project will increase over
140 percent compared to the forecasted ADT without the project. This corridor is the
connection which links Los Angeles County, in the vicinity of the Cities of Palmdale and
Lancaster, to San Bernardino County in the vicinity of the City of Victorville, Apple Valley and
Adelanto. State Route 138 links Los Angeles County cities of Palmdale and Lancaster with San
Bernardino County cities of Victorville, Apple Valley and Adelanto.

Route 71 is a major regional highway transportation facility traversing parts of Los Angeles, San
Bernardino, and Riverside County. It is a connecting link for major east-west corridors passing
through the area and serves as an inland passageway for interregional travel between San
Diego and the eastern portion of the Los Angeles area. The route also serves heavy commute
traffic originating in the communities of Chino, Ontario and Pomona that is destined for
employment centers in Orange and Los Angeles Counties. The purpose of this project is to
alleviate traffic congestion by increase capacity on State Route 71 from Interstate 10 to Route
60 to handle the forecasted traffic volumes in coming years due to extensive development in the
region. The SR-71 is a component of the Freight Triangle in Los Angeles County, and, as such,
supports the robust goods movement system in California. Improving the efficiency of this
critical piece of the region’s goods movement infrastructure will support the goods movement-
dependent industries, which provide 33% of the region’s jobs, and contribute 35% of the
regional Gross Domestic Product according to SCAG’s 2016 Regional Transportation Plan.

The East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor Project will provide connections to local,
regional, statewide, and national passenger transportation networks. The project is regionally
significant as it provides improved access to the Metrolink Commuter Rail System through
connections at the Sylmar/San Fernando Valley and Van Nuys Metrolink stations. The project
would also connect to the expanding LA Metro regional transit system, with connections to the
Metro Orange Line station at Van Nuys Boulevard and with many Local/Rapid bus connections
traversing the alignment. The East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor project will also
connect to the national Amtrak rail network at Van Nuys station. The project would also improve
ambient air quality and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and Vehicle Miles Traveled
(VMT). These benefits would improve regional air quality in Southern California and would
contribute to statewide environmental goals for reducing GHGs and the number of vehicle-miles
traveled.

The Bus Acquisition projects will improve the reliability of the fleet by replacing the portion of
Metro’s bus fleet that has exceeded its useful life. The vehicles purchased will support Metro’s
operation of 170 bus routes throughout the 1,433 mile service area. Metro’s bus service serves
Los Angeles County, providing residents with access to jobs, education, health care, goods and
services, recreation, and other activities. Additionally, Metro’s bus system connects to the
Southern California Regional Rail network, the national Amtrak rail system, and regional
airports.

The Shoemaker Bridge connects State Route 710 (SR-710) from the west to Downtown Long
Beach in the east and functions as a very important local and regional gateway to the City and
the north via Interstate 710 (I-710). I-710 serves as the principal transportation connection for
goods movement between the Port of Los Angeles and POLB, located at the southern terminus
of I-710, and the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railway/Union Pacific Railroad (UP
Railroad) rail yards in the cities of Commerce and Vernon. I-710 also provides key interstate
commerce connections to east-west freeways (Interstate 405 [I-405], State Route 91 [SR-91],
Interstate 105 [I-105], SR-60, Interstate 10 [I-10], and I-5). SR-710 and the Shoemaker Bridge
provide the primary connection between I- 710 and Downtown Long Beach. The existing
Shoemaker Bridge has structural deficiencies and a high accident rate due to non-standard
geometric features that cannot be upgraded to current State Highway Standards. The Project
would replace the existing Shoemaker Bridge with a new bridge, that would address these
structural deficiencies and nonstandard design features in an effort to improve safety.

I-605 and I-5 are major north-south facilities between Orange and Los Angeles Counties and
carry international, interstate, interregional and intraregional travel. This area is projected to
experience substantial growth for goods movement. Build-out of the area, as well as increased
shipping traffic through the area, will generate additional traffic on the freeways and at the
system interchange. Reconstruction of the system interchange and widening of the mainline
facility will address existing deficiencies and accommodate projected growth. The project area
includes the following cities within Los Angeles County: Bellflower, Downey, Norwalk, Pico
Rivera, Santa Fe Springs, and Whittier.

The San Gabriel River Freeway, Interstate 605 (I-605) and is a major north-south transportation
route running through both Los Angeles and Orange County. The Artesia Freeway, State Route
91 (SR-91) is a major east-west transportation route that travels through the counties of Los
Angeles, Orange and Riverside. Both of these highways are integral parts of the freeway
network for the Southern California metropolitan area. The proposed interchange project would
help to improve the connection between these freeways, facilitating improved mobility for the
Southern California Region.

I-405 is a major north-south Interstate Highway in Southern California that spans 72.7 miles with
48.5 miles in District 7, Los Angeles County. It begins with Interstate 5 (I-5) in the City of Irvine
in Orange County and terminates with I-5 in the Mission Hills District of LA County. I-405 has
played a crucial role in the development of dozens of cities and suburbs along its route through
the Greater LA area. It is used for international, interstate, interregional and intraregional travel
and shipping through an urbanized corridor serving the four major import/export terminals of
Long Beach Municipal Airport, Los Angeles International Airport, and the ports of Long Beach
and Los Angeles. It travels through several LA basin cities and is also used as a commuter
route. It is a heavily-traveled thoroughfare by both commuters and by freight haulers and is the
busiest and most congested freeway in the United States.

Project Title: Route 71 Expressway to Freeway Conversion (Route 10 to Route 60)

Description of Corridor

The primary purpose for State Route 71 is to provide for the safe and efficient, interstate and
interregional movement of people and goods. State Route 71 is a connecting link for major
east-west corridors including Interstate 210, I-10, SR-60 and SR-91. With the Interstate 15 (I-
15), SR-71 serves as an alternative for interregional travel for Interstate 5 (l-5) between San
Diego and the eastern portion of the Los Angeles metropolitan area. The route serves heavy
commute traffic originating from the communities of Chino, Ontario and Pomona going to
Orange and Los Angeles Counties. SR-71 also serves as an interregional route circulating
significant volumes of local traffic.

Project Description

The purpose of this project is to alleviate traffic congestion by increasing capacity in Pomona on
State Route 71 from Interstate 10 to Route 60 to handle the forecasted traffic volumes in
coming years due to extensive development in the region. The project proposes to widen State
Route 71 to add one mixed flow lane and one High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane in each
direction between Interstate 10 and Route 60, converting the existing 4-lane expressway to a
full 8-lane standard freeway. The project includes replacing two existing bridge structures over
railroads and an existing pedestrian overcrossing as well as constructing retaining walls and
sound walls.

Project Cost

$ 327 Million

Project Benefits

This project proposes to upgrade three miles of existing four-lane express way to an eight
lane freeway on Route 71 from Interstate 10 to Route 60 in Los Angeles County. The
purpose of the project is to increase freeway capacity, relieve existing traffic congestion,
increase traffic safety and accommodate future traffic demands resulting from regional
growth. This segment is the last remaining segment to convert to a freeway and provide
carpool lanes between Interstate 10 and Route 91. State Route 71 is a critical connector for
distributing nationally significant truck flows between Interstate 10, State Route 60, and State
Route 91 through Los Angeles, San Bernardino, and Riverside Counties.

Project Title: East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor

Description of Corridor

The proposed project would run along the busy Van Nuys Boulevard and San Fernando Road
corridors serving the eastern San Fernando Valley for 9.2 miles. At the northern end, the
project would connect with the Sylmar/San Fernando Metrolink Station, and from there run
south to connect with the Metro Orange Line at the Van Nuys station.

The Van Nuys Boulevard corridor has the seventh highest total transit boardings on the Metro
Bus system, and is currently served by Rapid Line 761 and Local Line 233, which have
combined passenger boardings that are the second highest in the San Fernando Valley. The
demand in passenger boardings is constituted by both transit dependent and discretionary
riders. The project study area’s overall population density and the transit dependent population
density are both more than double that of the County’s total urbanized area.

Project Description

The proposed project would provide 9.2 miles of high capacity transit service extending south
from Sylmar/San Fernando Metrolink Station to the Metro Orange Line Van Nuys Station. The
project would provide area residents, businesses, and transit-dependent populations with
improved mobility and access to the regional transit system.

Currently, the Draft Environmental Document advances a number of alternatives including Bus
Rapid Transit, Tram, Light Rail with tunneling, as well as no-build and Traffic System
Management alternatives. The Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) is slated for selection in
February of 2018. For the purposes of characterizing and qualifying the anticipated benefits of
the East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor Project here, analysis and modeling was based
on a Light Rail Alternative, as the voter- approved Measure M Expenditure Plan identifies a
total project cost that is congruent with the cost of a Light Rail alternative. Upon selection of the
LPA in February, the project mode and the associated benefits will be more clearly defined.

Project Cost

$ 1.5 Billion

Project Benefits

The East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor Project is a vital public transit infrastructure
investment that would provide improved transit service along the busy Van Nuys Boulevard and
San Fernando Road corridors serving the eastern San Fernando Valley. The project would
provide new service and/or infrastructure that would improve passenger mobility and
connectivity to regional activity centers, increase transit service efficiency (speeds and
passenger throughput), and make transit service more environmentally beneficial via reductions
in greenhouse gas emissions. The project would also provide relief to an increasingly
congested transportation corridor that traverses some of the most highly-dense communities in
the San Fernando Valley.

In addition to mobility benefits, improved transit connectivity and service would also increase
transit ridership, which in turn could result in environmental benefits due to reduced vehicle trips,

2018 Los Angeles County Regional Transportation Improvement Program 31


reductions in vehicle miles traveled, less roadway congestion, and improved air quality.

Improved mobility to and from the project area has the potential to boost economic
development and improve social justice by providing better access to employment,
educational and health facilities, and activity centers. The project would bring a high capacity
transit service to economically disadvantaged and transit-dependent parts of the San
Fernando Valley, including the communities of Panorama City, Pacoima, and Arleta.

The East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor Project is included in the Southern
California Association of Governments (SCAG) 2016-2040 Regional Transportation Plan
/Sustainable Communities Strategy (RTP/SCS), adopted in April 2016. The RTP/SCS
also outlines several projects in and around the project area aimed at maximizing the
effectiveness, safety, and reliability of Southern California’s transportation system.

Safety and Capacity Increases


The project’s Build Alternatives (BRT or LRT) would require 1-2 travel lanes in each direction
along Van Nuys Boulevard and San Fernando Road in addition to changes to on-street
parking. Based on the higher carrying capacity provided by each of the Build Alternatives, the
number of people traveling through the corridor (person throughput) would be greater than
what is currently possible with general purpose lanes and mixed- flow bus service.

Safety improvements to the corridor, including project-specific mitigation measures and


implementation of first-last mile enhancements will aim to reduce safety impacts resulting
from the project. First-last mile improvements for safety can include things such as increased
lighting near station areas, high-visibility/convenient crosswalks for pedestrians, and sidewalk
improvements.

Mobility
The project would provide new service and infrastructure that would improve passenger
mobility and connectivity to regional activity centers and the local, regional, and national
transit system, through increased transit service efficiency (speeds and passenger
throughput).

Connectivity
The East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor Project will provide connections to local,
regional, statewide, and national passenger transportation networks. The project is regionally
significant as it provides improved access to the Metrolink Commuter Rail System through
connections at the Sylmar/San Fernando Valley and Van Nuys Metrolink stations. The project
would also connect to the expanding LA Metro regional transit system, with connections to the
Metro Orange Line station (which itself connects to the Metro’s North Hollywood Red Line
station) at Van Nuys Boulevard and with many Local/Rapid bus connections traversing the
alignment. The East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor project will also connect to the
national Amtrak rail network at Van Nuys station.

Multi-modal Corridor Improvements Investments


In addition to facilitating connections to Metrolink, Amtrak, and the Metro Orange Line, the project
will incorporate first-last mile improvements that will consider access improvements to/from
stations that aim at improving the passenger experience for pedestrians, bicyclists, disabled
passengers, the elderly, and persons transferring between the transit station to local buses and
other modes. First-last mile improvements to improve mobility can include things such as

2018 Los Angeles County Regional Transportation Improvement Program 32


pedestrian-friendly crosswalks, safety barriers to protect people from trains, bicycle storage, and
improved sidewalks, among other enhancements. These improvements could reach up to a half
mile from each station area and would be planned through a process that engages local
communities, officials, and other stakeholders.

Environmental Benefits
The project would also improve ambient air quality and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG)
emissions and Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT). These benefits would improve regional air quality
in Southern California and would contribute to statewide environmental goals for reducing
GHGs and the number of vehicle-miles traveled.

Mitigating the Project Risks


Metro is committed to satisfying applicable federal, state, and local environmental regulations
and to applying reasonable mitigation measures to reduce adverse effects and significant
impacts. Measures to mitigate potential effects and impacts for the project alternatives are
identified in this Draft EIS/EIR. Metro Board of Directors authorizes the completion of the Final
EIR when they approve a project alternative, the Board will also adopt a Mitigation Monitoring
and Reporting Program (MMRP), which lists all of the committed mitigation measures and
CEQA Findings. Upon approval of the proposed project, these mitigation measures will become
part of the proposed project, and will be considered binding under CEQA.

Project Title: Bus Acquisition (Projects 1 and 2)

Program Description

Metro operates 170 bus routes that operate within the 1,433 square mile Metro service area.
Metro’s fleet of 2,438 buses facilitates the operation of those 170 routes, providing over 17,800
service hours a day. In order to ensure vehicles are able to effectively operate service, buses
are maintained throughout their useful life and are retired once their useful life has been
exceeded. For the purposes of maintaining a fleet-wide state of good repair, Metro replaces the
retiring portion of the fleet, which is currently being replaced at a rate of approximately 200
buses per year. The two bus acquisition projects will assist Metro in meeting these fleet
replacement needs.

Goals and Objectives

The bus purchases will support Metro’s objectives of providing safe, reliable and high-quality
transit service. Additionally, the Bus Acquisition projects will help Metro achieve its goal of
maintaining its system in a state of good repair.

Project Cost

The total project cost for Bus Acquisition ( Project 1) $ 216 million

The total project cost for Bus Acquisition (Project 2) $312 million

Project Benefits

Reliability
The vehicles being replaced are the oldest, lease reliable, and most maintenance intensive
vehicles in the Metro fleet. The older vehicles in the fleet experience a higher rate of
breakdowns mid-service, with fewer miles between mechanical failures. Vehicle breakdowns
reduce the overall reliability of the system, and diminish the appeal of transit to the commuting
public. The replacement of these vehicles with the newer fleet will ensure smoother operation,
greater reliability and the ability to accommodate existing and grow future ridership.

Accessibility
The Bus Acquisition projects will procure wheelchair accessible low floor transit buses, which
accommodate the widest spectrum of passengers including children, adults, the elderly, and the
physically disabled, conforming to all applicable ADA regulations.

Environmental Benefits
Depending on the selected vehicle technology, the Bus Acquisition projects may result in no net
reduction or a significant reduction of transit-generated GHG emissions. Additionally, reliable
and frequent transit service can help encourage mode shift from auto trips to transit trips,
leading to greater GHG emission reductions.

2018 Los Angeles County Regional Transportation Improvement Program 35


Cost Effectiveness of Bus Replacement Vehicles (Bus Acquisitions 1 and 2)

The Cal B/C model has a number of parameters required that are not compatible with a system-
wide bus fleet replacement project. In order to compute the investment benefit for a transit-
related project, the Cal B/C model requires information on parallel highways, as well as changes
in ridership and vehicle miles for both a “no-build” and a “build” scenario. In the case of bus
fleet replacement, the Cal B/C requires specifying a single parallel highway roadway class. For
a bus project where the buses purchased would operate throughout Metro’s service area, it is
not feasible to provide a single classification for the parallel roadway. With regard to
measurements of ridership and mileage changes that would be expected with a new project,
these figures are not expected to change under a fleet replacement project, as fleet
replacement does not expand capacity or service. Additionally, the Cal B/C model specifies a
model horizon of 20 years, and that is not relevant for vehicles with an estimated useful life of
14 years. Therefore, for the purposes of the RTIP, project lifecycle costs and benefits are
detailed below using a simple gathering of data on the costs and benefits of the project.

Metro, along with many other bus operators, maintains a policy that requires its fleet to be
interchangeable throughout the system, allowing the flexibility to operate vehicles on all routes.
Metro is currently considering various fleet technologies for system-wide fleet replacement,
including: CNG (the technology currently operated), Low-NOx CNG vehicles, and/or Electric
Vehicles. Cost and benefit information is presented for the three alternative technologies under
consideration.

Range in Lifecycle Costs by Vehicle Technology (through 2034 per the 14-year useful life
expectancy)
CNG Buses Lo-NOx Electric
Bus Capital Expenditures $.16 billion $.17 billion $.23 billion
Bus Operations $12.6 billion $12.6 billion $12.3 billion
Expenditures
Total $12.8 billion $12.8 billion $12.6 billion

Depending on the technology chosen, environmental benefits may or may not result from the
retirement of old technology, and its replacement with new vehicle technology.

Range in CO 2 -e reductions by technology (through 2034 per the 14-year useful life
expectancy)
CNG Buses Low-NOx Electric
CO 2 -e saved (tons) 0 98,474 2,909,109
CO 2 -e saved (millions $)* $0 $4.3 million $126 million
* Dollars per ton based on Cal B/C 6.0 emissions parameters and the dollars per ton value given for
CO 2 -e.

Additionally, there are other benefits related to fleet replacement. Newer vehicles provide
greater reliability, and help reduce the Mean Miles Between Mechanical Failure (MMBMF),

2018 Los Angeles County Regional Transportation Improvement Program 36


resulting in fewer mechanical disruptions to service. Service reliability influences travel behavior
and helps to sustain and grow ridership.

2018 Los Angeles County Regional Transportation Improvement Program 37


Project Title: Shoemaker Bridge Replacement Project (710 Early Action Project)

Description of Corridor
The Shoemaker Bridge connects State Route 710 from the west to downtown Long Beach to
the east and functions as a very important local and regional gateway to the City and the north
via I-710. The limits of the proposed Project lie between the Port of Long Beach (POLB) and
downtown Long Beach.
The area within the Project limits contains a mix of uses. The area south of Broadway Avenue
and west of the Los Angeles River is characterized by commercial development typical of a
downtown area. The area north of Broadway Avenue contains residential development with
Cesar E. Chavez Park, Cesar E. Chavez Elementary School, and industrial development
adjacent to the river. Cesar E. Chavez Park is located south of Shoemaker Bridge and is
currently separated from open space areas along the LA River by West Shoreline Drive. The
west side of the LA River includes the POLB and supporting industrial development.

Project Description
The proposed Project limits on I-710 extend from the eastern abutment of Shoemaker Bridge at
the LA River to the 10th Street off-ramp (PM 6.0 to PM 6.4). On local streets, the north-south
Project limits are on Golden Shore from 600 feet south of West Shoreline Drive in the south to
Anaheim Street in the North. The east-west Project limits on local streets are from Atlantic
Boulevard in the East to the Anaheim Street and 9th Street intersection in the West. The
proposed Project would reconstruct Shoemaker Bridge ramp structures and realign West
Shoreline Drive.
The City of Long Beach, in cooperation with Caltrans, is proposing to replace the Shoemaker
Bridge (West Shoreline Drive) in the City. The proposed Project is an Early Action Project of the
I- 710 Corridor Project and is located at the southern end of I-710 in the City and is bisected by
the Los Angeles River.
Three alternatives, a No Build Alternative (Alternative 1), and two Build Alternatives
(Alternatives 2 and 3) are being evaluated as part of the proposed Project. Both Alternatives 2
and 3 will replace the existing Shoemaker Bridge over the Los Angeles River with a new bridge
located just south of the existing bridge. In both Build Alternatives the Shoemaker Bridge will
accommodate bicycle and pedestrian use. Both Alternatives will include the evaluation of design
options for a roundabout (Design Option A) or a “Y” intersection (Design Option B) at the
easterly end of the bridge. The primary difference between Alternatives 2 and 3 is that
Alternative 2 provides for the re-purposing of the existing bridge for non-motorized
transportation and recreational use and Alternative 3 includes the removal of the existing bridge.
Alternatives 2 and 3 will also provide improvements to associated roadway connectors to
downtown Long Beach and along West Shoreline Drive from SR-710 and improvements along
portions of 3rd Street, 6th Street, 7th Street, and Broadway Avenue from Cesar E. Chavez Park
to Magnolia Avenue. The proposed improvements may include additional street lighting, re-
striping, turn lanes, bicycle, pedestrian, and streetscape improvements. The Project also
includes the removal of the Golden Shore Street Bridge over Shoreline Drive and modifications
to Golden Shore Street to create a new controlled intersection at Golden Shore Street and
Shoreline Drive. The Project will also evaluate street improvements on 6th and 7th Streets from
Magnolia Avenue to Atlantic Avenue and on Anaheim Street between 9th and Atlantic Avenue.

Additionally as an Early Action Project of the I-710 Corridor Project, Alternatives 2 and 3 will

2018 Los Angeles County Regional Transportation Improvement Program 38


evaluate the impacts from the closure of the 9th and 10th Street ramp connections into
downtown Long Beach.

Project Cost
Project costs for Plans, Specifications, and Estimates, are $14 Million.

Project Benefits
The proposed project is intended to achieve the following goals:
• Provide a structure and highway facility that meets current structural and
geometric design standards
• Provide a facility that is compatible with planned freeway improvements and
downtown development projects
• Improve connectivity from the downtown area to surrounding communities and
adjacent recreational use areas
• Improve safety and operations for all modes of transportation

Safety and Capacity Increases


The existing Shoemaker Bridge has structural deficiencies and a high accident rate due to
non- standard geometric features that cannot be upgraded to current State highway standards.
The Project would improve safety, operations, and connectivity between downtown Long
Beach and regional transportation facilities. The Project would also accommodate planned
improvements in the area, such as the City’s planned expansion of Cesar E. Chavez and
Drake Parks.
If the existing Shoemaker Bridge were to continue to be used for vehicular traffic, the existing
nonstandard features would remain and the existing bridge alignment would preclude planned
improvements by other locally and regionally significant projects, specifically, the I-710
Corridor Project. The implementation of the proposed Project would provide consistency with
the improvements proposed as part of the I-710 Corridor Project and the Mobility Element of
the City’s General Plan (adopted October 2013), in addition to meeting the needs for traffic
safety and accommodating the projected increase in demand for non-motorized transportation
facilities within the City.
The existing Shoemaker Bridge was constructed in 1953 and needs to be reconstructed in
order to bring it up to current structural and roadway design standards. The following items are
assessed in the report: the deck condition is poor, the bridge rails are nonstandard, and the
deck geometry is characterized as tolerable. Additionally, local traffic entering and exiting from
ramps on either end of the bridge, northbound (NB) and southbound (SB), have nonstandard
weaving distances. Accidents occurring on the bridge and ramps may be attributed in part to
the short weaves.
Evaluation of freeway mainline accident data, presented in Table 1-3, reveals that the most
common type of accident reported for NB I-710 were sideswipe and rear-end, followed by
collision with an object. On SB I-710 the most common accident was sideswipe, followed by
rear-end and collision with an object.

2018 Los Angeles County Regional Transportation Improvement Program 39


Mobility
The Project is intended to improve safety as well as improve connectivity from the Long
Beach Downtown area to surrounding communities. The project will not increase capacity.

Connectivity
I-710 serves as the principal transportation connection for goods movement between the Port
of Los Angeles and POLB, located at the southern terminus of I-710, and the Burlington
Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railway/Union Pacific Railroad (UP Railroad) rail yards in the cities
of Commerce and Vernon. I-710 also provides key interstate commerce connections to east-
west freeways I-405, SR-91, I-105, SR-60, I-10, and I-5. SR-710 and the Shoemaker Bridge
provide the primary connection between I- 710 and downtown Long Beach.

Multi-modal Corridor Improvements Investments


Within the City, public transportation is provided by Long Beach Transit (LBT), the City, and
Metro. LBT is the principal provider of public transportation in the city and provides
transportation via bus, shuttle, and water taxi.
The following are descriptions of each service provided by LBT:
• LBT currently operates 34 bus routes, and nearly 2,000 bus stops. LBT bus routes
offer connections to local rail service and to the neighboring cities of Carson, Compton,
Paramount, Bellflower, Artesia, Cerritos, Hawaiian Gardens, and Norwalk.
• The Passport Shuttle is a free local bus service that serves various neighborhoods in
Long Beach, including California State University, Long Beach (CSULB), downtown
Long Beach, and Pine Avenue.
• The AquaLink water taxi has four (4) stops and ferries up to 75 passengers to the most
popular Long Beach Harbor and Alamitos Bay Landing attractions. The AquaLink
operates daily from May 21 to September 5 and on weekends September 9 to October
303.
• The AquaBus water taxi, which ferries up to 49 passengers to the most popular
attractions on the Long Beach Waterfront, stops at five (5) locations, including the
Aquarium of the Pacific and the Queen Mary. The AquaBus operates daily from May
21 to September 5 and on weekends from September 9 to October 30.
In addition to services provided by LBT, the City administers a Dial-A-Lift service, which offers a
curb-to-curb, shared-ride transit service exclusively for the mobility-impaired residing in and
traveling throughout the cities of Long Beach, Lakewood, and Signal Hill.
Metro operates the Metro Blue Line light rail transit in the city, which connects downtown Long
Beach to downtown Los Angeles. The north-south Blue Line connects to east-west lines such
as the Red and Purple Lines in downtown Los Angeles and the Green Line in Willowbrook.
There are eight Blue Line stations located in the city. The Transit Mall and Pacific Stations are
located within the neighborhoods adjacent to the Project limits, at Pacific Avenue/1st Street and
Pacific Avenue/5th Street, respectively.
Portions of the Los Angeles River and Rio Hondo (LARIO) Trail (a Class I Bikeway) are located
within and adjacent to the proposed Project limits. Access points to the LARIO Trail are located
throughout the City; however, two access points are located within or adjacent to the proposed
Project. One access point is located adjacent to the SCE substation and another is located just
north of Shoemaker Bridge near DeForest Avenue, on the east side of the river.
In addition, other Class I, II, and III Bikeways are located throughout the City and the

2018 Los Angeles County Regional Transportation Improvement Program 40


neighborhoods adjacent to the proposed Project limits. Class I Bikeways are located along West
Shoreline Drive, Broadway, and 3rd Street. Class II Bikeways are located along 6th Street and
7th Street. Class III Bikeways are located along Pacific Avenue and Chestnut Avenue.

Mitigating the Project Risks


The environmental process is currently underway. Environmental approval is anticipated in 2018.

Project Title: SR-91 WB from Shoemaker Ave to I-605/SR-91 Interchange

Description of Corridor

The Interstate 605 (I-605), is a major north-south transportation route and the Artesia Freeway,
State Route 91 (SR-91) is a major east-west transportation route within Los Angeles County
and are integral parts of the freeway network for the Southern California metropolitan area. In
an effort to improve traffic flow along the freeways, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan
Transportation Authority (Metro), in cooperation with the Gateway Cities Council of
Governments (GCCOG), the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) District 7, and
the County of Los Angeles, is proposing to construct improvements to the system interchange
at I-605 and SR-91 and corridors approaching the interchange.

Project Description

This project is the first phase project of the larger project (EA 07-29810) that is to improve the
entire interchange and all local interchange ramps up to 3 miles from/to the interchange. The
objective for this project is to complete the Project Approval and Environment Document
(PA&ED) work needed for the improvement work on Westbound SR-91 to I-605/SR-91
interchange to reduce congestion and improve freeway operations to main lines and connected
ramps.

Project Cost

$ 30 Million ($8 M for PA&ED, 22 M for PS&E)

Project Benefits

The improvement of this first phase project proposes to add new lanes (General Purpose
and/or auxiliary), modify on/off ramps and reduce numbers of existing non- standard features
to SR-91 WB from Shoemaker Ave to I-605/SR-91 interchange. The project seeks to reduce
congestion and improve freeway operations on the main lines and connected ramps.

2018 Los Angeles County Regional Transportation Improvement Program 45


Safety and Capacity Increases
The project will reduce congestion and improve freeway operations, improve local
interchange operations, and improve safety. The project will improve the existing non-
standard lane and shoulder widths, and will improve weaving distances between successive
on and off ramps, which will improve safety for users.

Mobility
The project will improve mobility for users within the project limits and in the project
vicinity by eliminating operational deficiencies, reducing congestion, and improving traffic
flow on the mainline and ramps.

Connectivity
The project will facilitate connectivity between geographic areas as it improves a vital system
to system connector (Westbound SR-91 to Northbound I-605), and will improve the westbound
High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane by improving the non-standard left shoulder width. It will
also improve connectivity between the local streets in the Cities of Cerritos and Artesia, as the
project improves the westbound ramps of local interchanges, including Bloomfield Ave,
Norwalk Blvd, Pioneer Blvd, and Studebaker Ave Interchanges.

Multi-modal Corridor Improvements Investments


At ramp terminus intersections, the local roadways will be improved for pedestrians and
bicyclists, as well as for vehicular traffic. Improvements will include ADA improvements at
crosswalks and sidewalks and bicycle refuge lanes at intersections between right turn lanes and
through lanes. Sidewalk will be added to both sides of Gridley Road overcrossing, where it
currently only exists on one side of the overcrossing bridge.

Mitigating the Project Risks


The project development team actively manages the risks of the project, such as schedule and
cost risks. These include designing improvements that minimize impacts to avoid elevating the
mid-level environmental document to a high-level environmental document.

The project includes some residential and commercial full property acquisitions, which presents
a risk of possible community resistance. The local agencies are in support of the project, and
various forms of public outreach have been conducted to the public and local agency elected
officials.

Project Title: I-405 Crenshaw Blvd Ramp Improvement

Description of Corridor

I-405, within project limits, is a freeway that consists of a total of 10 lanes in which 2 are high
occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes. Crenshaw Blvd, within project limits, consists of a total of 7
lanes and has a posted speed limit of 40 mph. The through lanes currently have a width of 11-
12 feet, and the right and left turn lanes have a width of 12-13 feet and 10 feet respectively.
Crenshaw Blvd is a truck route per the City of Torrance.

Project Description

The project is located on I-405 at the Crenshaw Blvd/182nd Street on/off ramps in the South Bay
sub-region. The project will alleviate congestion, improve traffic flow and operational conditions
on I-405 and the local arterials of Crenshaw and 182nd St in the City of Torrance. The proposed
improvements will also add a new I-405 on/ramp at Crenshaw, additional storage on the on/off
ramps and add an auxiliary lane on I-405 between Western Ave and Crenshaw Blvd.

Project Cost

$ 92 Million

Project Benefits

Benefits of this project include improvement of freeway and arterial operations, increase in
safety and reduce delays by alleviating congestion on local arterials and the I-405 mainline.

Benefits Summary
 Benefit Cost Ratio: 4.4
 Vehicle Hours of Delay Saved: 603,027 /yr
 Delay Savings: $5.6 M
 Current Daily Vehicle Occupants*: 277,200
 Daily Vehicle Occupants Forecast w/o Project*: 313,500
 Daily Vehicle Occupants Forecast w/ Project*: 313,500
 Safety Benefit: $5.4 M /yr.
 Additional Jobs Created** 1,200

*Average Daily Traffic Data from the application is converted to “vehicle occupants” by multiplying by 1.1, the
average occupancy of a vehicle in Los Angeles County today.

** According to the Council of Economic Advisers within the Executive Office of the President, every billion
dollars of transportation funding generates 13,000 jobs for one year.

Safety and Capacity Increases


The proposed project will increase the capacity of the interchange and provide new turning
movements to enhance accessibility and safety, improve traffic flow, operational conditions
and alleviate congestion. The need for the project stems from deteriorating operations
condition on I-405 and Crenshaw/182nd on/off ramps, a forecasted increase in traffic
volumes, increasing delays during AM and PM peak period travel periods, and higher than

2018 Los Angeles County Regional Transportation Improvement Program 48


average accident rates at some interfacing intersections.

Mobility
There is a queue spillback from the existing SB I-405 on-ramp into Crenshaw Blvd due to the
ramp being at excess capacity. The queuing adversely affects local street operation by
causing congestion, excess idling, increased fuel consumption and greenhouse gas
emissions. In addition, there is currently traffic congestion on 182nd St and Crenshaw Blvd
due to insufficient storage space for vehicles on 182nd St, Crenshaw Blvd, and I-405 on-
ramps. Vehicles, entering or exiting the freeway, weave and merge on I-405 mainline lanes
which back up commuter traffic from I-405 on-and- off ramps at 182nd St and Crenshaw Blvd
to Western Ave. The goal of this project is to improve operational conditions and mobility,
reduce delays by decreasing congestion, while improving safety and implementing a long-life
pavement strategy.

Connectivity
I-405 is a major north-south Interstate Highway in Southern California that spans 72.7 miles
with 48.5 miles in District 7, Los Angeles County. I-405 has played a crucial role in the
development of dozens of cities and suburbs along its route through the Greater Los Angeles
area. It is used for international, interstate, interregional and intraregional travel and shipping
through an urbanized corridor serving the four major import-export terminals of Long Beach
Municipal Airport, Los Angeles International Airport, and the ports of Long Beach and Los
Angeles. It travels through several Los Angeles basin cities and is also used as a commuter
route. It is a heavily-traveled thoroughfare by both commuters and by freight haulers and is
the busiest and most congested freeway in the United States. The proposed improvements on
the I-405 mainline as well as the on-and-off ramps at 182nd Street and Crenshaw Blvd to
Western Avenue will improve the connectivity of the interchange and the I-405.

Mitigating the Project Risks


Project risks will be monitored and mitigated as the project progresses during the different
phases of its development. A risk register has been developed and it will be updated
periodically.

The existing facility consists of one lane of travel in each direction. The new facility will provide for two lanes of travel in each direction as
well as a median lane and standard width shoulders which will improve safety and capacity.

Purpose and Need


This project will serve to relieve congestion and enhance safety along the Route 138 Corridor. The area of Antelope Valley is one of the
fastest growing areas in Los Angeles County. In addition, Route 138, between Route 14 in the West and I-15 in the East, has been
designated as a safety corridor. Although minor improvements have been made, the addition of 2 lanes will improve mobility and
enhance safety.

Additional Information
The corridor has been identified in 2001 (Project Report for EA 127200, 104830, 188410, 18420 and 188430).
Since then various segments were created, identified and funded based on effectiveness and funding
availability. The last supplemental report was completed in 2013 showing the latest update for the corridor.
Since then, remaining segments 6, 9 and 13 were programmed. However, during the last programmng cycle
(FY 16), RIP funding was removed from these projects.

Segment 6 has achieved RTL status, however, project needs support and capital funds. The District proposes
that Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LACMTA) fund the project.

As a prior STIP project, reversible lane consideration is not applicable to this project. Further, this project is a
segment of a larger highway improvement and reversible lanes would not be compatible with the other
highway segments constructed or being constructed.

SECTION 1 - All Projects
Project Background
Route 138, from Avenue T in the City of Palmdale to junction with Route 18 in Llano, has been designated as a Corridor.
This Corridor has been divided into several Segments, each of which is a separate project. Not all Segments (projects) are
programmed. There are 7 Segments (projects) which are programmed in "Phase I". The first project is completed in
construction, with the last project in Phase I scheduled to be in construction in Spring, 2012. This project is in Phase II and
will be funded by Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transporation Authority (LACMTA).

Programming Change Requested


Proposing construction support and capital needs to be programmed.

Reason for Proposed Change


Project construction phase was un-programmed due to STIP funding shortfall during 2016 program cycle. Design continued
and project achieved RTL status. However, additional Design and RW support is necessary to accommodate for contract
advertisement, award and approval process and additional needs for RW efforts.

If proposed change will delay one or more components, clearly explain 1) reason the delay, 2) cost increase related
to the delay, and 3) how cost increase will be funded

Additional Information
The corridor has been identified in 2001 (Project Report for EA 127200, 104830, 188410, 18420 and 188430).
Since then various segments were created, identified and funded based on effectiveness and funding
availability. The last supplemental report was completed in 2013 showing the latest update for the corridor.
Since then, remaining segments 6, 9 and 13 were programmed. However, during the last programmng cycle
(FY 16), RIP funding was removed from these projects.

Segment 13 was in design and currently on-hold when the project funding was removed. The District
proposes the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LACMTA) fund the project for PS&E,
Right-of-Way, through Construction with RIP funds.

As a prior STIP project, reversible lane consideration is not applicable to this project. Further, this project is a
segment of a larger highway improvement and reversible lanes would not be compatible with the other
highway segments constructed or being constructed.

Project was un-programmed due to STIP funding shortfall during 2016 program cycle. Project is on-hold, until additional
support funding is available to update the project. Capital cost estimate was adjusted to meet current forecast of
construction capital cost.

If proposed change will delay one or more components, clearly explain 1) reason the delay, 2) cost increase related
to the delay, and 3) how cost increase will be funded
In adidition to completing the design process, the project PS&E and documents need to be updated to meet current
guidelines. The effort to meet current guidelines will require design team to revisit and modify/adjust the design package.
The additional effort will be funded by RIP funding.

Additional Information
The corridor has been identified in 2001 (Project Report for EA 127200, 104830, 188410, 18420 and 188430).
Since then, various segments were created, identified, and built based on effectiveness and funding
availability. The last supplemental report was completed in 2013 showing the latest update for the corridor.
Since then, remaining segments 6, 9 and 13 were programmed.

Segment 4 is the last remaining segment that's identified in the original corridor that has not been constructed.
Completion of this segment will ensure consistent facility capacity between major regions to facilitate freight
movement and passenger vehicle interregional travel by closing the last gap of the corridor.

The District proposed to fund the design this project (PS&E) with IIP fund to finalize closing the "gap" of the
corridor. The proposal was not included in the Draft ITIP.

The current proposal is for Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LACMTA) to fund the
design, right-of-way, and construction with RIP to finalize closing the "gap" of the corridor.

This project is a segment of a larger highway improvement and reversible lanes would not be compatible with
the other highway segments constructed or being constructed.

SECTION 1 - All Projects
Project Background
Route 71 is a major regional highway transportation facitility transversing parts of Los Angeles, San Bernardino, and
Riverside County. It is a connecting link for major east-west corridors passing through the area and serves as an inland
passageway for interregional travel between San Diego and the eastern portion of the Los Angeles area. The route also
serves heavy commute traffic originating in the communities of Chino, Ontario and Pomona that is destined for employment
centers in Orange and Los Angeles Counties. The purpose of this project is to alleviate traffic congestion by increasing
capacity on Route 71 from Interstate 10 to Route 60 to handle the forecasted traffic volumes in coming years due to
extensive development in the region.

Programming Change Requested


Metro is requesting 2018 RIP funds in anticipation of the construction support cost needs for the project.

Reason for Proposed Change


Metro is requesting 2018 RIP funds to fully fund the construction support component of the project.

If proposed change will delay one or more components, clearly explain 1) reason the delay, 2) cost increase related
to the delay, and 3) how cost increase will be funded

Project Title
East San Fernando Valley North-South Transit Project (East)
Location (Project Limits), Description ( Scope of Work)
East San Fernando Valley North-South Transit Project was identified in the TCRP program as part of the Los Angeles-San Fernando
Valley North-South Transit Extension. The design build project scope includes constructing a North-South transit corridor to improve
north/south transit service in the eastern San Fernando Valley along the busy Van Nuys Boulevard and San Fernando Road Corridors.
The transit service will travel between the Metro Orange Line to the south, and the Sylmar/San Fernando Metrolink Station to the north,
via the median of Van Nuys Boulevard (6.7 miles) and along or adjacent to San Fernando Road to the north (2.5 miles), a total distance
of 9.2 miles. A Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) will be selected to determine whether this high capacity transit project will be a Bus
Rapid Transit (BRT) or a Light Rail (LRT) project. Regardless of mode, the project will deliver 9.2 miles of high capacity transit service.

SECTION 1 - All Projects
Project Background
I-405 is a major north-south Interstate Highway in Southern California that spans 72.7 miles with 48.5 miles in District 7, LA
County. It begins with Interstate 5 (I-5) in the City of lrvine in Orange County and terminates with I-5 in the
Mission Hills area of LA County. I-405 has played a crucial role in the development of dozens of cities and suburbs along its
route through the Greater LA area. It is used for international, interstate, interregional and intraregional travel and shipping
through an urbanized corridor serving the four major import/export terminals of Long Beach Municipal Airport, Los Angeles
International Airport, and the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. It is also used as a commuter route.Heavily-traveled by
both commuters and by freight haulers, it's the busiest and most congested freeway in the US. It is part of the California
Freeway and Expressway System.

PLANNING AND PROGRAMMING COMMITTEE


NOVEMBER 15, 2017

SUBJECT: 2018 REGIONAL TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENT


PROGRAM

ACTION: APPROVE 2018 REGIONAL TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM FOR


LOS ANGELES COUNTY

RECOMMENDATION

APPROVE the programming of up to $481,845,000 for the 2018 Los Angeles County Regional
Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP) as shown in Attachment A.

ISSUE

In August 2017, the California Transportation Commission (CTC) adopted the 2018 State
Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) Fund Estimate, which provides new funding capacity
over the five-year STIP period from Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 through FY 2023. In September 2017, the
Board approved the State and Federal Funding Evaluative Criteria Framework designed to
strategically guide Metro’s considerations and pursuits of state and federal discretionary and formula
funding programs.

Board adoption of the 2018 Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP) for Los Angeles
(LA) County will help secure formula funds for projects that are less competitive for other
discretionary programs and those that have a low tolerance for risk. Approving this recommendation
is consistent with the Board-approved 2009 Long Range Transportation Plan priorities, and meets the
State and Federal Funding Evaluative Criteria.

DISCUSSION

Background
The STIP is a five-year capital improvement program of transportation projects on and off the State
Highway System. Every two years, the CTC adopts a new STIP cycle adding two new years of
funding capacity to the rolling five-year program. The last STIP was adopted by the CTC in May
2016. The 2018 STIP covers the five-year period from FY 2018-19 (FY 2019) through FY 2023. The
STIP contains two portions. The first portion, the RTIP, accounts for 75% of the total STIP and is
directly programmed by Regional Transportation Planning Agencies and County Transportation
Commissions. The RTIP portion is the subject of the recommendations of this report. The second

portion is the Interregional Transportation Improvement Program (ITIP), which consists of the
remaining 25% of the STIP and is directly programmed by Caltrans.

Relationship to the 2016 STIP


In the 2016 STIP, the revised final STIP Fund Estimate (FE) was negative, resulting in project
deletions rather than new programming. Roughly $74 million was deleted from LA County’s program.
The 2018 STIP FE fully restores $754 million in statewide deletions. Additionally, it provides $1.5
billion for the regions and the state to program additional projects. In developing the 2018 RTIP, staff
first restored prior funding commitments previously deleted from the 2016 STIP, consistent with CTC
priorities (Attachment B). Next, staff utilized the Evaluative Criteria Framework to ensure that the
program of projects proposed satisfies each of the principles the framework sets forth (Attachment
C).

Proposed 2018 RTIP


Consistent with the Evaluative Criteria Framework, staff aimed to strategically apply formula funds for
projects that are less likely to compete well in discretionary programs and those that have a low
tolerance for risk. In addition, staff looked to reduce the charge rate associated with Caltrans support
activities by looking for opportunities to fund those costs with state dollars, which are subject to a
lower Indirect Cost Rate Proposal (ICRP). Based on these considerations and the assessment of the
other criteria, staff recommends programming STIP funds for the program of projects as shown in
Attachment A and described in Attachment B.

In order to be positioned to receive funding up to the maximum LA County target of $481,845,000,


Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) must prepare an RTIP proposing
the programming of those dollars for eligible projects through the STIP period. In addition to the total
target shares of $317,185,000, the 2018 STIP includes an Advanced Project Development Element
(APDE) target for LA County of $54,170,000. Programming APDE would allow Metro to advance a
portion of future STIP shares to fund project development work, including environmental and design
elements. Up to an additional $110,490,000 could be advanced to LA County projects from future
shares under the maximum target if other counties program less than their total targets. Board-
approved programming must be submitted to the CTC by the December 15, 2017 deadline for the
2018 STIP process. Therefore, staff seeks board approval of the 2018 RTIP (Attachment A) and the
three tiers of funding as follows:

Interregional Transportation Improvement Program


Caltrans is responsible for developing the Interregional Transportation Improvement Program (ITIP),
consistent with the Interregional Transportation Strategic Plan (ITSP), which the CTC adopts as a
component of the STIP. Staff worked with Caltrans District 7 to propose three projects in LA County

for the 2018 ITIP, of which Caltrans Headquarters has included one in their Draft 2018 ITIP. The Draft
ITIP includes $7 million for the Rosecrans Marquardt Grade Separation project, proposed in FY 2020.
Staff continues to work with Caltrans and the CTC to include ITIP funding for the I-5 Corridor
Improvements Project between the I-605 and the I-710, which is a part of Operation Shovel-Ready.
We are seeking a total of $16 million for that project in FY 2019.

DETERMINATION OF SAFETY IMPACT

Adoption of the 2018 RTIP will authorize staff to seek funds to make safety and other mobility
improvements in several areas of the county.

FINANCIAL IMPACT

Approval of the 2018 RTIP for LA County would have no negative financial impact to the county. The
2018 RTIP fulfills prior and anticipated funding commitments for transportation projects within LA
County.

Impact to Budget

The approval of the 2018 RTIP has no impact to the FY 2018 budget.

ALTERNATIVES CONSIDERED

The Board could elect to reject the staff recommendation for the 2018 RTIP. This option is not
recommended as it would force LA County to surrender the formula funds available through the 2018
STIP period. This would be detrimental to the project funding for the projects proposed herein. Staff
has identified a geographically and modally balanced set of priority projects, which is consistent with
state guidelines and the evaluation criteria framework approved by the Board in September 2017.

NEXT STEPS

With Board approval of our recommendation, staff will proceed with and monitor the following steps
to securing the 2018 LA County RTIP submittal:

• Submit RTIP request to CTC - December 15, 2017

• CTC Southern California STIP hearing - January 25, 2018

• CTC publishes staff recommendations - February 28, 2018

• CTC adopts STIP - March 21-22, 2018

Projects Proposed for Programming in the 2018
Los Angeles State Transportation Improvement Program

In developing the 2018 RTIP, staff utilized the Evaluative Criteria Framework to ensure
that the program of projects proposed satisfies each of the principles the framework
sets forth (ATTACHMENT C). Based on that assessment, staff recommends the
following:

• The SR-138 Segment 6 is a project that will serve to relieve congestion and
enhance safety along the Route 138 Corridor. Programming is proposed for FY
19 for the Construction Phase ($19.8 million). This project had been previously
programmed in FY 17, but was deleted from the 2016 STIP due to negative
funding capacity. Funding the 2016 deletions is the highest priority for the CTC
and programming this project restores a prior funding commitment.

• The SR-138 Segment 13 is proposed for FY19 and FY23 for Design ($4 million)
and Construction ($67 million). This project had been previously programmed in
FY17, but was deleted from the 2016 STIP due to negative funding capacity.
Funding the 2016 deletions is the highest priority for the CTC and programming
this project restores a prior funding commitment.

• The SR-138 Segment 4 is proposed for FY19, FY 20 and FY22 for the Project
Study and Engineering Phase ($5.3 million), Right of Way ($15.7 million) and
Construction ($19 million). This project is the final segment of the SR 138, and
completing it will allow the full benefits from the investments across the corridor
to be realized.

• The SR-71 is a project that proposes to upgrade 3.2 miles of existing four-lane
expressway to an eight-lane freeway on Route 71 from Interstate 10 to Route 60
in Los Angeles County. Programming is proposed for FY21 for the Construction
Support Phase ($20 million).

• The East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor Project will provide improved
north/south transit service in the eastern San Fernando Valley along Van Nuys
Boulevard and San Fernando Road. Programming is proposed for FY 21 for the
Right-of-Way Phase ($34.6 million) and for FY22 and FY23 for the Design and
Construction Phases ($72.5 million). The project is expected to be delivered
under a design-build contract, and the funding proposed would support the
design and construction of the project.

• The Bus Acquisition Project 1 is required to maintain a state of good repair of our
bus fleet through a replacement schedule that allows Metro's buses to be retired
and replaced after the end of their "useful life" as defined by the FTA.
Programming is proposed for FY20 ($30.2 million). This funding supports the

2018 Los Angeles County Regional Transportation Improvement Program 132


ongoing fleet replacement and upgrading required to support Metro’s bus
operations and ensure Metro’s fleet is in a state of good repair.

• Programming for the Bus Acquisition Project 2 is proposed for FY23 ($17.1
million). This funding will fund a scheduled future bus replacement. This project
supports the ongoing fleet replacement and upgrading required to support
Metro’s bus operations and ensure Metro’s fleet is in a state of good repair.

• Planning, Programming, and Monitoring (PPM) funds are proposed for


continuation to fund the planning activities of Metro and is proposed for FY21 ($4
million), FY22 ($4 million), and FY23 ($4 million).

In addition to the projects programmed for Los Angeles County’s total target share, staff
proposes to establish a second tier to utilize the full Advanced Project Development
Element (APDE) target of 25% off the shares forecasted for the next STIP cycle to fund
project development activities. Shares will be advanced from the next share period. The
following projects are proposed for APDE, Tier II:

• The I-710 Early Action Shoemaker Bridge includes the replacement of the
existing bridge and reconfiguration of the associated connector roads to
downtown Long Beach. APDE would be proposed for FY19 to fund the Project
Study and Engineering Phase ($14 million).

• The I-605/SR 91 Interchange Improvements Project is being collaborated by the


Gateway Cities Council of Governments, the City of Cerritos, and the City of
Artesia who are proposing to make improvements on the westbound SR-91
between Shoemaker Ave and the I-605/SR-91 interchange. APDE would be
proposed for FY19 to fund the Project Study and Engineering Phase ($22
million).

• The I-605/I-5 Interchange Improvements Project proposes improvements


Florence Ave to Paramount Blvd. APDE would be proposed for FY21 to fund the
Project Study and Engineering Phase ($18.2 million).

Lastly, staff is recommending a third tier of projects should other regions under-
program, leaving additional funding capacity available. Tier III is proposed as follows:

• The I-405 Crenshaw Blvd Ramp Improvement Project proposes to improve


operational conditions on the I-405, and its on-and-off ramps at Crenshaw
Boulevard and 182nd Street in Torrance. Programming is proposed for FY22 for
the Construction Phase ($12 million).

• The East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor Project (see description above) is
being proposed to receive additional funding to be programmed for the
Construction Phase in FY22 and FY23 for a total of ($98.5 million).

2018 Los Angeles County Regional Transportation Improvement Program 133


Additionally, staff is amending the $4.6 million in prior PPM programming for FY19 to
instead be spread over FY19 ($2.3 million) and FY20 ($2.3 million) in order to avoid a
gap in PPM funding in FY20. The CTC typically views PPM as a high priority for
allocation.

Evaluative Criteria Framework to Guide the 2018 RTIP Development

In selecting projects to submit for funding through the 2018 State Transportation
Improvement Program (STIP), staff used the Evaluative Criteria Framework. The
framework was approved at the September 2017 Board meeting. The framework was
applied as follows:

1. Sustain Measure M and other Pre-Measure M/LRTP Priorities and Schedules


Staff evaluated Metro’s existing priorities as established in the LRTP, Measure R and
Measure M expenditure plans to identify project schedules that coincide with the STIP
programming and allocation constraints. The 2018 STIP includes funds in each of five
years, FY 2018-19 through 2022-23. This step of the review consisted mainly of identifying
projects ready either for:

1) pre-development funding only, such that they might compete for future cycle SB-1
or other discretionary programs for construction funds; or
2) funding through construction.

Many of Metro’s projects satisfy this criterion and have project phases underway within the
5-year STIP program, including all of the projects proposed in the 2018 RTIP.

2. Match competitiveness of Projects to New/Expanded Programs Criteria

STIP funding is relatively flexible. Eligibility is broad in the STIP program, and all projects
identified in the first step of review were deemed eligible, however, the guidelines contain a
number of points which staff took into consideration when identifying projects.

Firstly, projects deleted through the 2016 STIP are the first priority for funding from the 2018
STIP, and for Los Angeles County, these include:

• SR-138 Segment 6
• SR-138 Segment 13.

Secondly, performance information requirements established with the adoption of the 2016
STIP Guidelines places emphasis on projects which reduce greenhouse gas emissions, as
well as other measures including efficiency and effectiveness. In building the program for
the 2018 STIP, staff sought a modally balanced submittal to help ensure acceptable results
for the performance reporting requirements. The inclusion of the bus acquisition projects
and the East San Fernando Valley support the performance goals within the STIP.

Additional consideration is required to ensure all projects proposed are eligible for the mix of
state and federal funds sources for the State Highway Account which funds the STIP.
Beginning with the 2018 STIP Fund Estimate Public Transportation Account funds are no

2018 Los Angeles County Regional Transportation Improvement Program 135


longer available for the STIP. Therefore, staff analyzed all transit projects to determine
whether they were eligible for either fuel excise tax funds protected by Article 19 (dedicated
right-of-way, infrastructure only, no rolling stock) or federal funds. Projects not clearly
eligible for federal funds or Article 19 state funds were screened out.

3. Certainty (Formula) vs. Risk (Competitive/Discretionary)

With the limited availability of formula funds, staff focused on the strategic use of STIP
formula funds on projects that are less likely to compete well in discretionary programs and
those that have a low tolerance for risk. Additionally, Caltrans applies a reduced Indirect
Cost Rate Proposal (ICRP) for work they perform when that work is paid for by state dollars.
Thus, staff also sought strategic programming opportunities that would achieve cost savings
on the (ICRP) applied by Caltrans for projects on the state highway system. For the projects
included in the RTIP, the following rationale was applied:

• State Route 71 had an existing funding gap due to the cancellation of the
FASTLANES grants. In response to the funding gap, staff committed to looking at SB
1 funding sources to fully fund this project. Based on the project’s relative potential to
compete for state discretionary programs, the significant risk to the existing funding
commitment of repurposed federal earmarks, and the opportunity to secure ICRP
savings, staff identified the SR 71 as an ideal candidate for STIP formula funds.

• The delivery of the SR 138 Segments 4, 6, and 13 are dependent on the availability
of state funds, as there are no explicit funding commitments for these segments
identified in Measure M. Lacking the potential to put forward any local match
reduces the ability of these projects to seek funds through other SB 1 discretionary
grant programs. Funding these projects with STIP formula funds makes it possible to
complete the remaining segments of the SR 138 with certainty while securing a
reduced ICRP rate for Caltrans support activities.

• The East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor Project had a funding gap as a result
of the state’s cancellation of the Traffic Congestion Relief Program (TCRP), which
STIP formula funds provide opportunity to address. Additionally, this project assumes
a large share of non-Measure M dollars, and thus is expected to compete in other SB
1 funding programs. Therefore, using formula funds for a portion of the non-Measure
M share of the project cost offsets some of the risks associated with aiming to
complete the projects non-Measure M funding entirely through discretionary grants.

• The Bus Acquisition projects are essential to Metro’s overall bus fleet management
strategy, and Metro’s ability to maintain our fleet in a state of good repair. Any risk to
the forecasted replacement schedule would have an impact on maintaining operating
schedules and delivering bus service. These projects are best suited for the certainty
afforded by formula funding sources.

2018 Los Angeles County Regional Transportation Improvement Program 136


With regard to the Advance Project Development Element (APDE) formula funds, staff
sought opportunities to initiate project development work that could help support future
SB 1 discretionary program candidate projects. The I-605/I-5 Interchange Improvements
Project, I-605/SR-91 Interchange Improvements Project, and the I-710 Early Action
Project/Shoemaker each had eligible phases of work within the 2018 STIP timeframe. In
addition, with Caltrans performing the project development work, Metro is able to secure
a reduced ICRP for these activities.

4. Geographic Balance

Including the Bus Acquisition project, the RTIP program funds projects in all of the nine
subregions. The projects by subregion are as follows:

Gateway Cities:

• I-605/I-5 Interchange Improvements


• I-710 Early Action Project/Shoemaker
• I-605/SR-91 Interchange Improvements

North County:

• SR-138 Segment 6
• SR-138 Segment 13
• SR-138 Segment 4

San Fernando Valley:

• East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor

San Gabriel Valley:

• SR-71

South Bay:

• I-405 Crenshaw Blvd. Ramp Improvement (Also included in the Measure R


Expenditure Plan)

Valley, San Gabriel Valley, South Bay, and Westside Cities:

2018 Los Angeles County Regional Transportation Improvement Program 137


• Bus Acquisition 1
• Bus Acquisition 2

5. Consistency with Board policies and directives

The projects identified for funding in the 2018 STIP are consistent with Board policies and
directives. STIP funds are part of the state and federal funds assumed in the development
of the Measure M Expenditure Plan. STIP funds as part of the funding plans of the Measure
M projects will help to keep the projects fully funded and deliverable in a timely manner.

6. Consistency with Metro Long Range Transportation Plan and Southern


California Association of Governments (SCAG) Regional Transportation Plan
(RTP)

All of the projects identified for STIP funding are Measure M, Measure R and/or LRTP
projects. Each project is consistent with the priorities set forth in the Metro LRTP and is
included in the SCAG RTP.
