Plans to dig a subway tunnel between Century City and Westwood include going under homes and condominiums.

How will that impact people living above the proposed route?

Metro plans to answer those questions at a meeting Tuesday at 6pm at Westwood United Methodist Church.  Construction experts will be on hand to explain how homes, businesses, water lines and other structures will be protected during the subway construction.

According to Metro officials, the subway construction and daily operation of subway trains would not be noticeable inside homes or on streets.  Metro officials also said property owners will be paid if the subway tunnel is built under their land.

Although no final decision on the route has been made, most of the construction would be under Wilshire Boulevard.

The Metro board is expected to make a final recommendation about the project this fall.
