Centinela Grade Separation

The Centinela Grade Separation Project will be built after the construction of the Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project is complete and will convert the existing at-grade crossing at Centinela and Florence to an above-grade crossing. The Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project will travel 8.5 miles serving the Crenshaw District, Inglewood, Westchester and surrounding areas. This line is estimated to have a daily ridership of approximately 13,000 and will have eight stations.

The Robert Group (TRG) is leading the public engagement effort to engage and inform the City of Inglewood and surrounding communities about the project, schedule and associated impacts. Because the City of Inglewood is currently undergoing significant redevelopment and facing interrelated construction and traffic issues, TRG has focused on building a comprehensive stakeholder database and engaging with stakeholders so site-specific needs can be shared.

TRG is working closely with Metro to implement a two-part milestone-driven engagement process. Phase I covers the initial outreach planning, engaging key stakeholders and building awareness around the project; Phase II encompasses traditional outreach methods and activities during the construction of the project.

TRG has spearheaded efforts to develop vital collateral materials such as a project fact sheet, FAQs, and project website language. Outreach efforts also include notifying the community of impending construction activities and periodic construction updates.
