LA MTA tabs PB to develop transit solution for Crenshaw-Prairie corridor

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LA MTA) recently retained PB to evaluate alternative alignments, prepare an environmental impact report and provide conceptual engineering services for the Crenshaw-Prairie Transit Corridor Project.

PB will evaluate the feasibility of implementing a high-capacity transit system within a 10.5-mile corridor, which includes portions of the cities of Los Angeles, Inglewood, Hawthorne and El Segundo. In addition to a "no-build" alternative, other options under consideration include a transportation system management alternative, a bus rapid transit system and a light-rail system.

The study is scheduled for completion in August 2010.
