The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG), Los Angeles County Public Works, Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT), Cal State LA, LA Metro, and other local partners seek feedback on the I-170 North Mobility Hubs Plan.
The I-710 North Mobility Hubs Working Group is developing the I-710 North Mobility Hubs Plan to improve mobility and quality of life in the heavily congested region surrounding the northern end of the 710 Freeway.
“For decades, communities surrounding the 710 Freeway endured the negative impacts caused by an ill-conceived mobility plan. Today we have an opportunity to correct the mistakes of the past and put into place an equitable plan that benefits the residents and businesses in our community. That work starts with providing important feedback that will guide this plan and reimagine improved mobility for everyone in our community,” says Los Angeles 14th District Councilmember Kevin de León.
The working group (consisting of SCAG, LA County Public Works, LADOT, Cal State LA, LA Metro, and other local partners) will expand online comment opportunities to engage the community on the conceptual designs of the mobility hubs. By visiting the project website, https://710mobilityhubs.com/, community members can review the conceptual designs on their own time and share their input via a new survey.
Community members can also visit any of the ten pop-up locations at the proposed mobility hub locations to see posters with more information (including proposed connections for people walking and bicycling) and speak with project team members. All pop-ups are free and open to the public. Participants may attend during the date and time that is most convenient for them.
There is also a new Social Media Challenge encouraging community members to visit the proposed mobility hub locations and share their ideas, with participants entered into a raffle for prizes! Information about the dates, times, and specific locations of the pop-ups and how to join the Social Media Challenge can be found on the project website: https://710mobilityhubs.com/.
The ten proposed mobility hub locations are:
- Broadway/Griffin (Lincoln Heights)
- Chinatown Station
- Cal State LA Gateway
- Daly/Main (Lincoln Heights)
- Huntington/Monterey (El Sereno)
- Main/Fremont (Alhambra)
- Marengo/State (Lincoln Heights)
- Mission/Meridian (South Pasadena)
- Main/Palm/Raymond (Alhambra)
- Valley/Fremont (Alhambra)
Background on the I-710 North Mobility Hubs Plan
Mobility hubs are places where two or more travel options – walking, biking, transit, and shared mobility (such as Uber, Lyft, bikeshare, and shared scooters) – come together to make it easier and more convenient to get where you need to go.
The I-710 North Mobility Hubs Plan seeks to identify future Mobility Hub locations that offer more transportation options, public spaces, and sustainable features in the area of Union Station in Downtown Los Angeles, the South Pasadena L Line (Gold) Station, the LA County Public Works (LACPW) headquarters in Alhambra, Cal State LA, and the surrounding neighborhoods.
Key project partners include:
- LA County Public Works (LACPW)
- City of Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT)
- California State University, Los Angeles (Cal State LA)
- Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LA Metro)
- City of Alhambra
- City of South Pasadena
- Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG)
