A Transportation Hub
Plentiful traffic and transit connections will make it easy for residents to travel to and from their homes in the new community.
Numerous street enhancements – including new traffic lights, traffic cameras, turn-only lanes and more – will help lead drivers smoothly from the 69-acre site to the surrounding community and key arteries located nearby, such as the 5, 10 and 101 Freeways.
Access to public transportation will be streamlined as well. The site’s prime location near numerous transit hubs will free residents from their cars as they commute to work, travel downtown or venture elsewhere.
A total of 17 bus lines – Metro and Montebello bus lines and an El Sol shuttle – serve dozens of stops on the site and in the immediate surroundings, making more than 600 stops every day. More buses will be provided to accommodate increased ridership, and improved bus shelters will be added around the site’s perimeter.
The new Metro Gold Line subway extension is opening additional rail possibilities, as well. Two stops are located within 1.25 miles of the site, at Soto Street/First Street and Indiana Street/Third Street. These stops provide swift access to Union Station and other destinations throughout the region and beyond.
