LOS ANGELES — The LA Metro board has approved plans to upgrade service on Metrolink’s Antelope Valley Line, which carries about 7,000 passengers daily.

The Santa Clarita Signal reports that the board approved a study which recoomended three changes to the 76.6-mile line, which currently offers 15 round trips on weekdays. Recommendations included adding one additional late-night round trip on Fridays and Saturdays, two additional off-peak round trips for midday service, and improve peak and off-peak service.

The study’s long-term goal is to have service on 30-minute headways, which would require double-tracking of much of the route at a cost of $180 million. Short-term improvements will require $41.8 million for four capital projects; those must be preceded by environmental clearance, which will cost an estimated $12.75 million.
