Main-McVay Transit Study

The main purpose for Phase 2 of the Main-McVay Transit Study is to evaluate the most promising transit options for the Main Street-McVay Highway Corridor as potential solutions to address growing concerns about safety, congestion, and quality of life that could be improved through transportation improvements. The goal of Phase 2 of the Study is to identify the locally preferred solution that can be supported by the City Council and the LTD Board of Directors.

In January 2016, the Study entered Phase 2 and is focused on design specifics to inform the decision-making process and determined the community’s choice for a preferred solution. Subject to that decision, the process could move to Phase 3: Environmental Review.

Over the course of Phase 2, the project design team will work directly with business and property owners to avoid and reduce potential impacts to properties along the corridors. The public will have input opportunities through this website, presentations, open houses, mailings, and e-updates. See Public Involvement Page for details.
