Please join ASCE OC & LA for a technical tour of the Metro Crenshaw LRT. Currently in construction, the Metro Crenshaw LRT was one of 12 transit projects funded by Measure R approved in 2008. The Line will travel 8.5 miles to the Metro Green Line and will serve the cities of Los Angeles, Inglewood and El Segundo; and portions of unincorporated Los Angeles County. This tour will be hosted by the Walsh Group (Design Build Contractor) and HNTB (Designer) to discuss construction/design challenges and discuss overall project progress.
Lunch is provided at the technical tour. PPEs (orange safety vest, hard hat, safety glasses and steel toed boots) are a requirement for this tour. There will be extra PPEs available at the tour, however, it is recommended to bring your own.

About the Project:
The Metro Crenshaw/LAX Line will extend from the existing Metro Exposition Line at Crenshaw and Exposition Boulevards. The Line will travel 8.5 miles to the Metro Green Line and will serve the cities of Los Angeles, Inglewood and El Segundo; and portions of unincorporated Los Angeles County. The new Metro Rail extension will offer an alternative transportation option to congested roadways and provide significant environmental benefits, economic development and employment opportunities throughout Los Angeles County. Riders will be able to make easy connections within the entire Metro Rail system, municipal bus lines and other regional transportation services.
