Title
CONSTRUCTION COMMITTEE FORWARDED WITHOUT RECOMMENDATION amending the FY 16 Budget to add $800,000 to Project 405556 Systemwide Planning in Cost Center 4330, Countywide Planning and Development to cover the design costs for modifications to the Crenshaw/LAX (C/LAX) station design for consistency with the Systemwide Station Design.

A notice-to-proceed was issued to Walsh/Shea Corridor Constructors (WSCC) on September 10, 2013 for the C0988 contract. The C0988 contract included the Metro Systemwide Station Design Concept report as a requirement. Since that time, Metro has further developed the Systemwide Station Design into drawings and adopted the new standard drawings as part of Metro Baseline documents that is required for all future light rail stations. Additionally, Board policy requires that all Light Rail Stations have fare gates which were not included in the Systemwide Station Design Concept report or the C0988 contract. For the most part, the C/LAX stations incorporate the intent of the Systemwide Station Design. The design modifications recommended will bring four of the C/LAX stations into better conformity with the Systemwide Station Design. Staff is requesting Board authorization to amend the FY16 Budget to add $800,000 using Countywide Systemwide Planning funds to modify portions of the platform configuration and the Florence/La Brea ticketing structure design as shown in Attachment.
