NORWALK — The Los Angeles County Transportation Commission is inviting Norwalk area residents and business people to a presentation on its Art for Rail Transit (A-R-T) program today. The program will involve artists and the community in the design of stations on the Metro Green Line.
A community advisory group is being formed to develop a fact sheet profiling the neighborhood's cultural, historical and local characteristics, which will be used as a guideline for artists selected to work on the rail transit stations. Local community members, art professionals and artists are encouraged to attend the meeting from 7 to 9 p.m. today in the Norwalk City Hall council chamber, 12700 Norwalk Blvd.
The 20-mile Metro Green Line will run along the median of the new Glenn Anderson Freeway (105) from Norwalk to Aviation Boulevard and Imperial Highway. It will branch off and run on an elevated guideway through the city of El Segundo to Marine Avenue. The Green Line will be the first fully automated rail transit line in the United States, meaning the vehicles will be driverless and operated by computers in a central control facility. The rail transit system will begin service in the fall of 1994.
