MTA OKs study of Wilshire subway plan

June 29, 2007|From a Times Staff Writer

The Metropolitan Transportation Agency board of directors on Thursday approved a $3.6-million feasibility study of the much-discussed extension of the Wilshire Boulevard subway.

The study will look at alternate routes and preliminary engineering and environmental issues. It will take up to 18 months to complete.

In approving the study, board members say they are not necessarily backing the so-called "Subway to the Sea" project, which would run along Wilshire from the Mid-Wilshire area through the Miracle Mile, Beverly Hills, Westwood and to Santa Monica. The subway would cost at least $4 billion.
