EAST SAN FERNANDO VALLEY TRANSIT CORRIDOR FIRST/LAST MILE
Cityworks Design is creating a First/Last Mile (FLM) Plan for 14 stations along the 9.5-mile East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor in collaboration with Metro Planning, Community Relations and KOA team. The plan aims to make Metro customers feel safe and eager to walk or bike to all ESFVTC light rail stations from the diverse neighborhoods that surround them. CWD’s planning and design work has included data analysis, GIS info-graphics, facilitating stakeholder and technical walk audits, refinement of Metro’s web-based app, defining pathway networks and project ideas for a half-mile area around each station. PSLA is leading the bike network analysis and potential bike improvements for a 3-mile area around each station. CWD and KOA team will be collaborating with community-based organizations to facilitate workshops focused on understanding the community’s priorities for FLM improvements.
