LOS ANGELES, March 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority recently tapped CH2M to provide Highway Program Project Delivery Support Services that will enhance transportation infrastructure in the most populated county in the U.S.

"It is an honor to continue to work alongside Metro on many of its key transportation improvement initiatives in Los Angeles County," said Bryan Nicol, CH2M's Highways & Bridges Director. "With continued population growth expected in Los Angeles in the coming years, these improvements will not only keep Angelenos on the move, but also ensure long-term economic vitality and a higher quality of life."

CH2M will help Metro address some of the region's most pressing transportation challenges, through a range of on-call task orders including:

  • Producing design plans, specifications, estimates, studies, reports and other technical documents.
  • Independent review and oversight of environmental design, including traffic, structures, electrical and drainage contract plans.
  • Development and management of databases for schedule, cost and quality control, risk assessments and management studies and plans.

CH2M also brings additional expertise in highway funding, emerging technologies, alternative project delivery and sustainable design to advance Metro's highway capital project planning and development process. Metro's recently approved Los Angeles County Traffic Improvement Plan, "Measure M," will guide many of the projects included under the contract.

In continuation of an over 30-year partnership with Metro and its predecessor agencies, CH2M's roadway and project delivery services on these projects will support overall "Measure M" goals, including easing traffic congestion, improving system connectivity and resiliency and supporting economic growth in Southern California.
