70.     RECEIVE oral response to HUIZAR MOTION on Regional Connector Transit Corridor Project approved at the April 26, 2012 Regular Board Meeting (original motion below):        

In February of 2012, the Metro Board of Directors continued the certification of the Regional Connector FEIR/FEIS to allow additional time for Metro staff and stakeholders to discuss and mitigate concerns related to the construction of the Regional Connector transit corridor project, with particular focus on the impacts to business within the Financial District
of the City of Los Angeles.

Over the past 60 days, a number of issues have been examined and the following mitigation efforts have been deemed feasible by Metro:
Extend the use of a tunnel boring machine (TBM) under Flower Street to include the area between 4th and 5th Streets up to the intersection of 5th Street and Flower Street.

On Flower Street between 5th and 6th Streets, where cut and cover is necessary, maintain four travel lanes between 6AM and 8PM during weekdays during the "steady state." The steady state is defined as the period between the completion of the decking installation to the commencement of removal of decking.

On Flower Street between 5th and 6th Streets, maintain no less than two travel lanes between 8PM and 6AM, except for those times when further street restrictions are required to facilitate decking installation and removal.

Require that any public spaces, gardens, plazas, walkways, sidewalks, trees, street furniture, landscaping, hardscaping or pedestrian areas, including but not limited to the Library Gardens and the Citigroup Plaza, which are impacted, damaged or altered as a resuIt of construction activity and/or staging, be reconstructed, replanted, repaired and replaced like-for-like at the end of construction activity in that vicinity:

Therefore Move that the Metro Board amend the Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) of the Regional Connector Transit Corridor Project to include the above design features, as long as they can be funded within the life-of-project budget, and include them as proposal options during the construction procurement to allow proposers a process to include each
design feature.

Further move that Staff should examine various value engineering and cost methods to incorporate the aforementioned mitigation methods into the current Life of Project Budget and report back in 60 days.

Consideration of items not on the posted agenda, including: items to be presented and (if requested) referred to staff; items to be placed on the agenda for action at a future meeting of the Committee or Board; and/or items requiring immediate action because of an emergency situation or where the need to take immediate action came to the attention of the Committee subsequent to the posting of the agenda.
