A divided California Transportation Commission voted Thursday to approve $83.2 million for construction of a light-rail line between downtown Los Angeles and Pasadena despite the inability of MTA chief executive Julian Burke to offer assurances sought by the panel. Specifically, Burke could not guarantee that the troubled transit agency will have money to run the trains once the long-delayed rail project is built.

The California Transportation Commission has decided to fund a long-delayed list of sound wall projects as part of its next spending plan--a move that should result in 13 new sound walls in the San Fernando Valley area in coming years, officials said Friday. Responding to a request by Gov. Gray Davis' administration, the commission agreed to provide money to pay for a 10-year-old list of unfunded sound wall projects throughout California, now estimated to cost about $230 million.

Fingering the cardboard transit pass in his pocket, Dana Reed grinned gamely and plunged into the crowded Los Angeles subway car. "If this isn't the right one, we're in trouble," he said as he claimed a spot in the aisle and grabbed for a handrail as the car lurched forward. "We'll end up in the wrong place." Reed is a Newport Beach lawyer who serves as vice chairman of the state Transportation Commission.

The area's most notoriously congested freeway interchange--the confluence of the San Diego and Ventura freeways--is expected to be upgraded soon under a spending plan approved this week by the California Transportation Commission. The commission voted Wednesday to include $7.9 million in a $375-million augmentation of a six-year, $9-billion capital improvement budget for two improvements to the traffic-jammed interchange. Overall, the freeway project is expected to cost $16 million.

A legislator said Tuesday he will use a new Assembly committee to pressure state and local bureaucrats to get to work on improvements to relieve congestion at the San Diego-Ventura freeway junction. Wally Knox (D-Los Angeles) was named Tuesday to head a new panel that will focus on the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and Caltrans, the agencies that would oversee the proposed $13-million project.
