Project Description:

Metro is examining ways to connect the growing Metro Rail system to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The focus of this study is a four square mile area bounded by La Cienega Boulevard on the east, Manchester Avenue to the north, Imperial Highway to the south and the LAX airport terminals in the west. In the initial phase, a broad range of alternatives are under consideration for making the connection between the regional rail system and LAX, including various combinations of several modes, such as Light Rail Transit (LRT), Automated People Mover (APM) and Bus Rapid Transit (BRT).

VCA’s Role:

VCA’s engineers performed research of the existing underground utilities under the roadway areas of the CTA as LAX using LAWA’s LUSAD system as well as other available data not yet in LUSAD or DDMS from project already completed or underway. In addition, VCA will review existing utilities and incorporate them in a composite utility plan to be used as background in the design and layout of the foundation of the people mover structure.
