Final Westside Subway Extension Plan Nears, Public Comment Begins
Watch the webcast at 6 p.m. of tonight’s public hearing for the Westside Subway Extension at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The hearing, of course, focuses on the draft environmental impact statement/report (DEIS/R) that was released earlier this month.
Details on all five hearings are after the jump. And here’s the link to our Sept. 3 post on the DEIS/R.
