The board of directors of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) recently 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.
For 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 St. 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.
The KDG Construction Consulting partnership has hired these subconsultants to work on the project: Rohadfox Construction Control Services; Fariba Nation Consulting; CER Scheduling Consultant; and VIRTEK Co.
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.
