The Challenges

As prime consultant, Anser provides construction management support services for the $440M Division 20 Portal Widening Turnback Facility project for the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LA Metro). The Division 20 project will serve to accommodate the increased service levels on both Metro Red and Purple commuter rail lines. To support this increase in service levels and overall ridership increase, Metro will make the following facility improvements: widening of the heavy rail tunnel portal south of the US-101 freeway, a new turnback facility, expansion and reconfiguration of rail storage tracks, and 1st Street Viaduct Bridge retrofit to accommodate proposed track configuration. In addition, the installation of new tracks and switches will allow for overall improved service times at Union Station and will result in a global benefit in efficiency throughout the Metro Red/Purple Line system.

This project ensures safety and reliability on the system, sufficient capacity to serve future passengers, and a more effective operation of Metro’s expanding network.
