Diving Brief: Teacher Perini recently announced she was the low bidder for the LAX Airport Connector project. The estimated contract value for the new transit hub is $ 480 million. The Los Angeles County Transportation Authority is the contracting agency, and the scope of work includes construction of a new major transit station connecting the Crenshaw / LAX metro lines, Green Railroads and several bus lines with LAX Automated People Mover. Tutor Perini expects to start work in the third quarter and achieve a major milestone in the first quarter of 2025. The company expects to add the project to the backlog of the first quarter of 2021. Dive Insight: The Metro calls the Airport Metro Connector a “true multimedia transit gateway to Los Angeles Airport” that will provide reliable and convenient access to the airport for those traveling there via regional bus and rail systems. In addition to providing a direct connection to the People Drive, which is under construction, the Mosul project will include: a new large capacity light rail station. A bus yard and terminal facility for metro and municipal bus operators. New Metro Customer Center. Pedestrian plaza with a pick-up and drop-off area. Secure bike parking. LAX Integrated Express Solutions, a Fluor-led consortium that includes infrastructure development for ACS, Balfour Beatty, Bombardier Transportation, Dragados USA, Flatiron and Hochtief PPP, laid the groundwork for the $ 5 billion APM Solutions project in March 2019. The design and construction value is less than $ 2 billion, but the 25-year operation and maintenance of the contract brings the total to nearly $ 5 billion. The 2.25-mile monorail system, which will operate on an elevated pilot track, includes six new stations. Major construction is expected to be completed in mid-2022, and passenger service must begin in 2023. Teacher Perini also recently announced that the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency Board of Directors approved $ 146.6 million in change orders for the company’s central subway project contract. This line will connect Downtown San Francisco and the city’s Chinatown neighborhood. Change orders increase Tutor Perini’s contract to over $ 1.1 billion and extend completion dates to March 31, for primary completion, and September 27, for final expiration.
