The East San Fernando Valley Light Rail Transit Project will improve connections and access to key destinations while connecting transit users to the growing network in the San Fernando Valley.
Project at a Glance:
Metro has completed the preliminary engineering design for East San Fernando Valley Light Rail Transit Project and has awarded the Progressive Design Build (PDB) contract to San Fernando Transit Constructors (SFTCJV). Notice to Proceed for Phase 1 Preconstruction Services was issued to SFTCJV in April 2023.
The PDB delivery method approved by the Board in October 2021 brings the contractor and their designer into the project early, to take the design from approximately 30-60 percent to approximately 85 percent, while collaborating with Metro and Third Parties, and then prices the construction costs.
In late 2022, Metro issued a contract to W.A. Rasic Construction Company, Inc. to relocate existing LADWP vaults and associated conduit infrastructure along Van Nuys Bl in advance of major construction. This work is ongoing and is anticipated to continue through late 2023 with third party work to follow in 2024
Metro’s consultant Gannett Fleming, Inc. has completed field investigation work ahead of the construction of the East San Fernando Valley Light Rail Transit Project.
Real estate activities have begun and are expected to run through 2027.
Anticipated Southern Segment start of construction: mid-2024.
Forecasted completion date: 2030
