REGION : Construction of Transit Center to Start in March

November 10, 1994|SUSAN WOODWARD

The California Transportation Commission will begin construction of a transit center and park-and-ride facility in March at the Artesia and Harbor freeway interchange.

Caltrans approved the $12.2-million development last month.

The project will be built on a vacant 18-acre landfill southwest of the interchange, Caltrans spokesman Rick Holland said.

The park-and-ride lot will hold 1,000 vehicles. A bus terminal and a water treatment center to help remove low levels of hazardous substances and methane gas found on the property also will be built.

The facility is part of the Harbor Freeway-Transitway project that runs 19.6 miles from San Pedro to the Santa Monica Freeway.

Plans for the project include widening and elevating the Harbor Freeway between the Artesia and the Santa Monica freeways for car pools and buses.
