This on-line event was on May 11th at 10:00 AM. Lisa Trifiletti, ITC Project Manager, provided an in-depth look at all project details in an on-screen presentation.  The following are the topics of the presentation and discussion. 

The new Inglewood Transit Connector (ITC) elevated fixed guideway, electrically-powered transit line will connect the first and last mile between the Metro K line and Inglewood’s sports and entertainment venues, as well as homes and job centers within a half-mile of its three stations. The proposed stations serve the following areas:

  • The new Market St. & Florence  Ave. Station will provide access to and from the Metro K line and downtown Inglewood’s Market Street.
  • The Prairie Ave. & Manchester Blvd. Station will serve the Kia Forum and SoFi Stadium.
  • The Prairie Ave. and Hardy St. Station will also serve SoFi Stadium, and the Hollywood Park Retail District and the Intuit Dome as well.

The project will create a convenient and environmentally sustainable transit connection. The project station areas include residential areas with 10,000 housing units and 600 affordable housing units, providing local residents access to regional rail transit. As a new travel option for 400 annual events at the area venues, the project will reduce traffic levels during the events, along with vehicle miles traveled and greenhouse gas emissions.   

A workforce agreement was signed with the local building and construction trades council to provide for inclusion of local workers, labor union apprentices, and disadvantaged subcontractor businesses. The project will include a public art program with a Lead Artist. In parallel with the project, the City has received grant funds for the Market Street Facade and Tenant Improvement Program to invest in the downtown area.  

A total funding amount of $1.9 billion in federal, state, and local funds has been secured. An RFP for project development was released in November 2023, with proposals anticipated to be received by May 31, 2024 and an award planned for fall 2024.
