Engaging Core Stakeholders

Once I-210 had been selected as the corridor for the project, we compiled a preliminary list of potential stakeholders along it. We initially cast a wide net, recognizing that the list of stakeholders can change as a project goes forward. Click the table for details:

We also researched the region’s demographics, the political landscape, potential project leaders, the current working relationship between the corridor stakeholders and Caltrans, and so on.

The core stakeholders at this point were:

  • Caltrans Headquarters
  • Local Caltrans District (District 7)
  • LA Metro
  • Los Angeles County Department of Public Works (LACDPW)
  • UC Berkeley/PATH

These stakeholders are responsible for freeway operations and maintenance, as well as designing the decision support system, managing the traffic management centers, bus and light rail operations, transportation planning and funding in Los Angeles County, the 511 traveler information services, signalized intersection control in the unincorporated areas of the county and on behalf of some of the I-210 cities, and more.

In June 2013, a project “Kick-Off Meeting” was held to provide project details, assign roles and responsibilities, and plan additional stakeholder meetings. The group meets regularly with weekly conference calls and monthly in-person meetings. In addition to the core stakeholders, a representative from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) also attends.

Note: The final list of stakeholders can be found in the Concept of Operations.
