Between natural disasters and ongoing wear and tear that cause bumps, cracks, and potholes, Los Angeles County residents are paying the price for outdated roads and underperforming transit systems. The growing effects of global warming have made it clear that we not only need significant investments in our infrastructure, but we need to fast-track critical improvements.
The next Third District Supervisor for Los Angeles County will have the opportunity to lead transportation and infrastructure projects that will impact and improve the lives of millions of Angelenos.
The San Fernando Valley is home to over 1.8 million people, but only has 2 of L.A. Metro’s 93 rail stops, limiting access for seniors, working people, families, and those with disabilities from accessible transit options. Improving streets, highways, and the L.A. Metro means more than connecting communities – these infrastructure projects also create good union jobs that boost our local economy.
Measure M projects in SD 3 include the Sepulveda Pass Corridor, East SFV Transit Corridor LRT with 14 stops, and Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project. We also can’t forget about the number of critical highway capacity enhancement projects that will go a long way to reduce congestion and emissions while new modes of transportation are developed.

- The quality of the pavement on most L.A. County streets and roads is on the “At-Risk” level according to the PCI index.
