Currently in the pre-construction phase for sections 2 and 3, the Westside Subway Extension of the Purple Line (Purple Line Extension) project covers nearly 38 square miles across four municipalities, requiring coordination with multiple jurisdictions and numerous stakeholders. This extension will provide an increased-capacity, high-speed rail line for those traveling to and from LA's "second downtown."
TRG has led the community outreach and public participation effort for the project since 2007. After having led the community outreach and public engagement effort on the Purple Line Extension’s Alternatives Analysis, Draft EIS/EIR, Final EIS/EIR and Preliminary Engineering phases, TRG transitioned its efforts to spearheading construction relations for Sections 1, 2, and 3.
As the Purple Line Extension project entered its preconstruction phase, TRG stepped in to assist Metro’s Project Delivery Department and Construction Management in conducting specialized and targeted public outreach as well as maintaining stakeholder communications. During this phase, TRG developed strategy on communications and outreach specifically for residents and businesses immediately around the stations at Wilshire/La Brea, Wilshire/Fairfax and Wilshire/La Cienega.
With section 1 construction well underway, TRG continues to lead community relations outreach for pre-construction activities for sections 2 and 3.
