Title
AUTHORIZE the Chief Executive Officer to:

ISSUE

In 2018, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) secured $14 million in State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) funds for the Plans, Specifications and Estimates (PS&E) phase of the Project.

CTC guidelines require full funding of the project phase at the time the STIP funds are awarded. Board approval of programming of the additional Measure R funds is hereby requested to fully fund the PS&E phase of the Project.
