Metro - Crenshaw/LAX Transit Corridor

The Crenshaw/LAX Transit Corridor is a north/south corridor 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 intersection of Crenshaw and Exposition boulevards to a connection with the Metro Green Line at the Aviation/LAX Station. The project provides major connections with the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) as well as links to the Green Line, Exposition Line, and the countywide bus network. The project includes construction of a light rail system comprised of a double-track right-of-way consisting of sections of at-grade in-street, at-grade within railroad right-of-way, aerial, and below-grade guideway sections. Eight stations and three park-and-ride facilities will be constructed, along with the Southwestern Yard which has already been completed.

Currently, KKCS is providing scheduling, risk analysis, and construction inspection services. Over the course of the project life cycle, KKCS had led value engineering and risk analysis. Responsibilities included development and maintenance of the Monthly Project Risk Register and updates to the Quarterly Risk and Contingency Management Report. KKCS met with the Federal Transit Administration to review primary and secondary project risks, reviewed the design-builder’s monthly schedule update, performed analysis of the critical path, confirmed activity percent complete and earned value progress, and prepared the Monthly Project and Executive Management Report. During design and construction of the Southwestern Yard, KKCS performed risk analysis, value engineering, constructability review, and third party cost estimating.
