Orange Line

Sepulveda is a station on the Los Angeles Metro's Orange Line. It is named after nearby Sepulveda Boulevard, which travels north-south and crosses the east-west busway route. Unique among Orange Line stations, Sepulveda's platforms are not located at the cross street, but rather about a block west of it. The station is in the Van Nuys neighborhood of the City of Los Angeles, in the central San Fernando Valley.[1]

The platform features a painting that shows a pre-Columbian glyph and a map of the monarch butterfly's migratory path.[2]

Development[edit]

Various development proposals have been considered for the excess station parking and adjacent commercial parcels between Sepulveda Boulevard on the east, the transit station on the south, Interstate 405 on the west, and the Victory Park neighborhood to the north. A comprehensive study, including conceptual land usage strategies, was prepared for LA Metro by students of the UCLA Department of Urban Planning in mid-2010.[3] Subsequently, conceptual development guidelines for the site were prepared by Metro.[4]

Thus far, a development project including an LA Fitness is built on land formerly housing a Wickes Furniture building. Between December 2011 and February 2012, the former Wickes Furniture building was demolished for this project. By October 2012, the LADWP has put up new wooden and metal power poles along Sepulveda Blvd next to the project. The LA Fitness building was built and opened to the public on March 2013.

By 2014 and 2015, most of the Sepulveda Station parking lot is now leased to the Keyes car dealerships that are on Van Nuys Blvd for inventory stock.[citation needed]

By fall 2019, and spring 2020; Metro will begin contruction on a bridge over Sepulveda Blvd as part of the improvements of the Metro Orange Line busway to reduce travel times.

During the 2028 Summer Olympics, the station will serve spectators traveling to and from events at the Sepulveda Dam. [5]
