Northwest 138 Corridor
The Northwest 138 Corridor extends approximately 36 miles along SR-138 between I-5 and SR-14 in Los Angeles County. The Project will expand on the previous North County Combined Highway Corridor Study, to develop a multi-modal transportation plan for the northern portion of Los Angeles County to address both short and long-term needs for a variety of trip purposes and goods movement. This corridor currently functions as a bypass for motorists and goods movement, as well as providing critical mobility for the Antelope Valley economy which provides employment opportunities not found elsewhere in the County such as space technology and alternative energy. The Northwest 138 Corridor will connect I-5, just south of Gorman Post Road, with SR-14 at West Avenue D.
AA is leading the public information program throughout the development of the Environmental Impact Report/Statement (EIR/S) in close coordination with Caltrans District 7 and Metro. The outreach program has included three rounds of public meetings (public scoping, open houses, and hearings), briefings to town councils and local stakeholder organizations, and information tables at dozens of local events. In addition, AA has collaborated with Civic Resource Group to bring the project area maps to life by developing the Geo-Social Interactive Map. This Google-based, dynamic mapping and social media tool is designed to allow the user to view the project area and zoom into specific areas of interest like the project alternatives, cities/towns, and proposed stations. To date, there have been nearly 15,000 unique viewers on the interactive map. Check out the interactive map here.
