Inglewood gets $400m for connector project

The Inglewood Transit Connector (ITC) project has been awarded a $407m grant from the California State Transportation Agency to support the proposed construction of the scheme.

The grant will be used to support the development of the line, which will see a private partner design, build, finance, operate and maintain a 1.6-mile automated transit system connecting LA Metro’s Downtown Inglewood K Line Station to the city’s premier sports and entertainment venues, and housing and commercial centers.

“I want to thank Governor Newson, our partners at the California State Transportation Agency, and our legislative delegation, for making a significant financial investment in the Inglewood Transit Connector, which paves the way in making this project not just a vision, but reality,” said Inglewood Mayor and Metro board member James T. Butts.

The ITC is now looking to secure a Capital Investment Grant to provide further funding for the project.

The project has seen good momentum in recent months and only a few days ago the Master Cooperative Agreement was agreed between the City of Inglewood and LA Metro.
