Supervisor Hahn Announces Metro Considering Plan to Accelerate West Santa Ana Branch


Los Angeles, CA—Today, Supervisor Janice Hahn released the following statement regarding Metro’s decision to move forward with additional review of unsolicited proposals to accelerate the West Santa Ana Branch transit line project by 14-15 years:

“I campaigned on the promise that I would fight to accelerate the West Santa Ana branch project. I made it clear from my first day in office that this was my priority as a new Metro Board Member and I am happy to announce that Metro is now considering plans to move this project forward by 14-15 years. The West Santa Ana Branch project is not only important to my constituents who will have a new transportation option; it is also a vital piece of the goal of connecting the greater Los Angeles County region by a transit system worthy of the 21st century.”
