USA: The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) Board of Directors awarded a contract to KDG+DE Construction Support Services for $25.9 million to provide construction support for the Airport Metro Connector (AMC) 96th Street Transit Station project. This is the first time a female-led consultant group has been selected to work on a large Metro project. 

KDG+DE is a partnership of KDG Construction Consulting and Destination Enterprises. The AMC station will be built at the intersection of Aviation Boulevard and 96th Street and will serve Metro Rail and local bus lines. The station will also be the transfer point between local transit and the future Los Angeles World Airport (LAWA) Automated People Mover that will provide quick rides to and from LAX passenger terminals.

Metro expects to begin heavy construction in mid-2020 with the station forecast to open in 2023, the same year as the LAX people mover is scheduled to debut. 

The AMC 96th Street Station is a design-bid-build project, meaning that all design plans and specifications will be completed by Metro’s design consultant prior to award of a construction contract.
