The "N" Line doesn't actually appear to be a real thing. Just something dreamt up by whoever drew that fantasy map, I guess as a way to deal with the branching of the Orange Line -- someone correct me if they know any different of course.

But yes, the Sepulveda and Van Nuys corridor projects are among the most critical in all of Measure M. I'm curious how it will actually come together -- the Van Nuys portion will almost definitely be LRT, but I had heard a Phil Washington comment (cannot find where) that the Sepulveda tunnel could be an HRT subway. So it's possible they are two separate lines that connect at Van Nuys/Oxnard.

If that's the case, they should just interline the Van Nuys LRT with the trans-Valley "G" Line.

Sepulveda Pass must be HRT......No question about this!
Yeah, I've always wondered how that would work......LRT Van Nuys line and the Sepulveda pass HRT line (if they go w/ this type of rail) and connect the line as one....... Do they build dual tracks or people will have to transfer at the Sherman Oaks/Sepulveda station?

Similar issues with Pink Line (Crenshaw Line Northern Extension), West Hollywood is requesting for HRT (very urban, no doubt justified) thru its area.....but Crenshaw Line/ LAX line is LRT......will Metro go for this?

Does anyone think that an extension to the new City of Champions stadium will be feasible?

It's definitely feasible, but I can't imagine it being prioritized anytime soon.

Based on some conversations I've had with Metro employees, the Harbor Subdivision through the South Bay definitely supports at least two lines, so my guess is that an Inglewood line would start in Torrance and follow the path of the Green Line South Bay Extension north, then veer east along Redondo Beach Blvd, and then up Crenshaw Blvd (or maybe Prairie?) until meeting the Crenshaw Line at Florence.

From there, the question is whether the Crenshaw Line tunnel has the capacity for interlining.

redspork02 I was thinking a spur off the Crenshaw line somewhere that would lead to the stadium, or extend the future Sepulveda line past lax to Inglewood and onwards
To the future Vermont ave subway, if it is indeed HRT

Anaheim Council Votes to Continue With Streetcar Despite Lack of Funding

Anaheim City Council members voted Tuesday evening to keep their $300 million streetcar project on life support, despite failing to secure federal funding and a vote by the Orange County Transportation Authority to stop working on the project[...]

Very sad, anti-everything but cars Orange County can't even build a streetcar. At least there's Metrolink.

Am I missing something?

Two things:

First what are the chances that the timeline being proposed by Metro would be altered once/if the Measure passes?

I ask because you can't tell me "road improvements" and "linking of a bike path" and "upgrading orange BRT signals" are on the same level of impact and importance as Sylmar to LAX Heavy Rail, Vermont Heavy Rail, WestHo Light Rail and even Artesia Light Rail.

And second,

The LA Mass Transit goes from decent to ELITE with five projects:
  • Sylmar to LAX Heavy Rail (btw, if they make Van Nuys Blv Light Rail then that's the most short sighted infrastructure mistake I literally have ever heard)
  • Vermont Heavy Rail
  • Purple line to Santa Monica
  • Lincoln Blvd Light Rail to SM PL station
  • Crenshaw light rail to Hollywood/High

With all the money that gets wasted by the Government at both the Federal and State level, I don't see how projects like they don't get built.

Just from the state level alone: The most recent signed California state budget was $171 Billion dollars. How much would the five projects I listed cost? 40 Billion? And if construction started now what's a reasonable amount of time for each project individually to get done? 12 years? You mean to tell me the state of CA can't give $3.3b per-year (1.9% of state budget) in the next 12 years toward getting its most important city to elite Mass Transit status to reduce its biggest and most consistent issue... Traffic/Congestion?

Then you combine that money with ANY help at all from the Federal level and you have a great system. Then Measure M money is the cherry on top of the sundae and if THAT passes you are looking at getting everything done Orange line LR, Pasadena to Orange LR, Pasadena to East LA LR, Both East LA extensions, LR to Artesia... maybe even fairytale projects like Red Line to Burbank Airport and Pico area Underground. Am I missing something or?

Los Angeles County and Orange County should merge their transit operations, moreover, local systems should fold into this bi-county mega agency.

This is the bigger goal, or something close to this. Meet the “2090 map”:

Regional Connector Construction Photos

Regional Connector Construction Photos, from The Source:
http://thesource.metro.net/2016/09/0...carousel-97361
Here are some new photos of the Regional Connector construction happening in Little Tokyo. Most of the construction activities this summer have been centered around preparing for the launch of the tunnel boring machine this fall.

Crews at the 1st/Central Station site have reached the bottom of excavation and work to build the station floor, or invert slab, is now underway. In the photos above you can see some of the struts used to brace opposing walls against each other. This type of excavation support system is best suited for narrow dig sites.

Underneath the intersection at Alameda and 1st Street crews continue utility relocation work and tunneling. To date, crews have reached about 45 feet below street level at the station site!

Usually it's ntoskrnl.exe. I assume this is some sort of embedded version?

We can't see anything. You can't post images until you make ten posts. Do that, and come back to post the image again.

Yes, we did mess that up. At least the new (old) lines are more grade-separated.
New from the Crenshaw line:

Investing in light rail can reduce how much people drive – but only for those close to stations.

Despite the pervasiveness of cars and driving in the US, some cities are pushing public transit projects. But what are the benefits of such projects[...]
