What's with the dashed green line branching off from Crenshaw? I thought that option was already eliminated from further consideration?

VERMONT CORRIDOR


Not from Metro's plans but a personal fantasy map.

I definitely agree with the merits of a Vermont Corridor given that there are sections that do not need to be underground due to the wider street widths. A good study needs to be done to show how this can be better utilized as a Regional transit corridor. Either by using a piece of a railroad right-of-way at the south end of the line as Crenshaw Corridor has the advantage of using a railroad right of way to reach LAX and tie into the existing rail transit infrastructure with relative ease via the Green Line and possibly Expo.
Why isn't this project being studied right now? Is it because of the high cost and the prioritization of the Westside Extension? BTW, what is the cost of subway vs. elevated?
