LA Exposition Light Rail Transportation Design-Build

Fluor was part of a joint venture with FCI and the Parsons Transportation Group (FCI/Fluor/Parsons or FFP) to design and build the Exposition Metro Line, a light rail line in Los Angeles, California.

Phase 1 of the project extended the line 8.6 miles from downtown Los Angeles to Culver City and included 10 stations. FCI is the managing partner and construction manager of FFP.

Fluor provided project controls, scheduling, QA/QC, document control, and systems and civil works integration management. In addition to the design and construction of tracks and stations, the project required extensive utilities protection and relocation, interfacing with numerous city and county agencies, a proactive and innovative procurement procedure, and a vigorous community outreach program that includes a local jobs program.

  • New stations offered state-of-the-art amenities, including ticket-vending machines, telephones, security cameras, real-time train arrival signs, bike racks, canopy-covered seating, and public art.
  • Park and Ride lots were constructed at three stations. Structures provided approximately 1,500 parking spaces.
  • Landscaping was a particularly important element in transforming Exposition Boulevard into a transit parkway. When it opened in April 2012, the new line featured thousands of trees, shrubs, and vines. Modeled after the successful Metro Orange Line in the San Fernando Valley, the Exposition Line has similar landscaping, creating a park-like atmosphere along the corridor.
