Metro is transforming Los Angeles with $120 billion of transportation improvements over 40 years. The Metro Board of Directors adopted an Early Project Delivery Strategy that will be used to determine how projects could be delivered faster than scheduled, without delaying other projects. These criteria include factors such as funding, process, partnerships and innovations. The Metro Board will review and make decisions about any opportunities to accelerate projects.
Related to this strategy, the Board also adopted the Twenty-eight by '28 Initiative identifying projects that could be completed in time for the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games. This initiative identifies projects already planned to be delivered by 2028, as well as projects with aspirational schedules that the Board has highlighted, but not committed, for early project delivery. The adopted policy for Early Project Delivery will apply prior to the Board making any binding decision to accelerate a project earlier than scheduled in the Measure M Expenditure Plan. Not all Measure M investments scheduled for completion by 2028 are included in this list and inclusion on the list does not supersede any commitments made in the Measure M ordinance.
The policy for the Early Project Delivery Strategy was approved by the Metro Board of Directors in November 2017.
