Los Angeles: San Fernando Valley light-rail line is back on the table

The Los Angeles Times

For the first time in more than two decades, Los Angeles transportation officials can legally discuss building a light-rail line through a southern swath of the San Fernando Valley.

Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill July 8, 2014 that will allow the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority to convert the Metro Orange Line busway to light rail. Brown’s signature reverses a 1991 law that banned above-ground rail through North Hollywood and Van Nuys.

Some have said Los Angeles County’s rail boom has been unfair to the Valley, which is home to nearly 20% of county residents. None of the 37 miles of rail that Metro hopes to build in the next decade will be north of the 101 Freeway.
