Help Plan the Future of the Harbor Subdivision

You are invited to attend a project update on the Harbor Subdivision Transit Corridor Alternatives Analysis (AA). In April and May 2009, Metro held public meetings to obtain your feedback on the four project alternatives to be carried forward through the duration of the study. Based on comments received at those meetings as well as more detailed technical analysis, Metro has completed the AA and will present the results at a series of community meetings this fall.
