The Exposition Light Rail Transit Project (Expo Line) light rail line will extend 15.2 miles from downtown Los Angeles to Santa Monica and comprise 19 stations.
McKissack & McKissack is providing services for Phase 2 to extend the line further west to Santa Monica. The joint venture team was initially one of two entities providing preliminary engineering and related services to the Exposition Construction Authority for the second phase of the Expo Line. Upon its successful performance, this joint venture team was selected as the design/build contractor. Specifically, McKissack & McKissack is providing project controls.
As a “Transit Parkway,” the Expo Line includes neighborhood bike paths, pedestrian areas, and landscaping to create community spaces. It will reduce vehicle miles traveled to help cut fuel consumption, leading to cleaner air and energy conservation. Moreover, it is expected to spur redevelopment and revitalization.
