TalkbackHere it is. After decades of debate, L.A. transit officials have selected a basic route for the proposed Westside subway.

It largely follows Wilshire Boulevard, which has long been the expected route. Other alternatives have been considered, including a route through West Hollywood and the Beverly Center/Cedars-Sinai Medical Center area.

What do you think of the route? Is it worth the estimated $5-billion + price tag? Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich's spokesman, spokesman Tony Bell, said he's concerned that the price of the Purple Line would take resources away from other transit projects.
