West Santa Ana Branch Transit proposed two stations in HP

The West Santa Ana Branch (WSAB) Transit Corridor Project is a new 20-mile light rail transit line that would connect downtown Los Angeles to southeast LA County, serving the cities and communities of Arts District, Little Tokyo, Los Angeles, unincorporated Florence-Graham community of LA County, Vernon, Huntington Park, Bell, Cudahy, South Gate, Downey, Paramount, Bellflower, Cerritos and Artesia. The Project’s name originates from the southern portion of the route south of the Metro Green Line that followed an old streetcar alignment known as the West Santa Ana Branch Corridor.

The City of Huntington Park and Chamber of Commerce representatives have been actively involved on the proposing of the two stations for our community.  The first location proposed is at the intersection of Florence Ave. and Salt Lake Avenue, with the second to be at Pacific Blvd. and Randolph Street. 

The project area is home to 1.2 million residents and a job center to approximately 584,000 employees.  Projections show an increase in the resident population to 1.5 million and jobs to 670,000 by 2040.  Population and employment densities are five times higher than the Los Angeles County average.  This rail corridor is anticipated to serve commuters in a high travel demand corridor by providing relief to the constrained transportation systems currently available to these communities.  In addition, the project is expected to provide a direct connection to the Metro Green Line and the Los Angeles County regional transit network. Per the Measure M Expenditure Plan, the Project is anticipated to break ground in 2022.

The residents and business representatives are encouraged to attend the community meetings that are being held on a monthly basis.  For information on the meetings, please visit their website at https://www.metro.net/projects/west-santa-ana/.
