The Metropolitan Transportation Authority Board of Directors is in the process of determining weather or not to tunnel under Beverly Hills High School to reach a subway station on Constellation Boulevard in Century City.
The board is slated to make a decision on phase two and three of the Westside Subway Extension, an expansion of the Purple Line to Beverly Hills, Century City, Westwood and the Veterans Administration Medical Center.
In a report , Metro staff affirmed the agency's position that it would be safe to tunnel under BHHS to reach a stop at ConstellationBoulevard/Avenue of the Stars. Geologists and engineers commissioned by the Beverly Hills Unified School District and city of Beverly Hills argued at a that Metro is using flawed data to support tunneling under BHHS.
The Metro board approved plans in late April for the first phase of the $5.6 billion Westside Subway Extension, but so it could consider Beverly Hills' objections to tunneling under BHHS.
