The Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority Expo Light Rail Phase 2 was about 45% complete by late July, and is on track to be completed by 2015. The existing Expo Line connects downtown Los Angeles to Culver City. Phase 2 of this project is a 6.6-mile westward extension of the Expo Line to Santa Monica. The segment includes seven major bridges, seven stations, and a railcar maintenance and parking facility.
Group Delta provided our geotechnical recommendations for the 6.6 mile guideway construction, including large and small diameter CIDH foundation analysis, seismic analysis, FLAC analysis for stress and deformation for buried utilities, recommendations for sound walls and retaining walls, and materials testing and inspection for the Kenter Canyon Storm Drain. We are also providing on-going design support during construction.
