The Kenilworth Corridor (3A) was selected as the Locally Preferred Alternative for Southwest Light Rail in 2009. During those discussions, national transportation blog The Transport Politic published three maps comparing the chosen 3A alignment with the 3C Alt 2 alignment which would have served Uptown and Whittier.
The decision is far in the rearview mirror, but it informs the current Kenilworth colocation or reroute challenges which have pushed the project back to 2019 opening (at the earliest) and which is at peril due to dithering.
Here are the three maps, republished with permission.
