Office of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti

STATEMENT: Mayor Garcetti on Metro Board's Release of $120 Billion Draft Expenditure Plan for Public Review

 

Proposed list of projects for a potential ballot measure would bring $120 billion for local transit and highway projects 

"This is a bold, ambitious, and necessary proposal that would finally deliver the comprehensive, interconnected transit network L.A. County needs. After more than two years of hard work, the draft plan addresses local concerns and would generate county-wide congestion relief, air quality improvements, and economic benefits. We are losing billions of dollars while Angelenos continue to be mired in traffic, and we must take action now. I look forward to hearing from community members and stakeholders during this public review period, as we work together to build a world class transportation system.” — Mayor Eric Garcetti
