RECOMMENDATION

Title
CONSIDER amending the Life-of-Project (LOP) budget by $90,000,000 for the Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project (Project) of $2,058,000,000 to $2,148,000,000, consistent with the provisions of the Board-adopted Measure R and Measure M Unified Cost Management Policy (Attachment B).

Issue
ISSUE

The Substantial Completion date for the Project is currently forecast to be delayed to December 2020 and the revenue service in 2021. As a result, the Project LOP budget needs to be increased, requiring an additional $90,000,000 million beginning in the second half of 2020 for Metro staff and professional service contracts to continue management and oversight of the Project. No additional funding from this LOP increase is designated for the contractor. This represents the first LOP adjustment since the beginning of construction on the Project in 2013.
Background
BACKGROUND

The Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project is a north/south light rail line that serves the cities of Los Angeles, Inglewood, Hawthorne and El Segundo as well as portions of unincorporated Los Angeles County. The alignment extends 8.5 miles, from the Metro E (Expo) line at Crenshaw and Exposition Boulevards to a connection with the Metro Green Line south of the Aviation/LAX Station. The project provides major connections with the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) as well as links to the C Line (Green), the E Line (Expo) and countywide bus network.
The alignment is comprised of a double-tracked rail line consisting of sections of at-grade in-street, at-grade within railroad right-of-way, aerial, and below-grade guideway sections, eight stations, park and ride facilities at two locations, utilities, landscaping, roadway improvements required by the project and a maintenance & storage facility (Division 16 - Southwestern Yard).
