L.A. Metro authorizes negotiation of Iteris contract modifications

Posted on January 29, 2009

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) Board has authorized its CEO to negotiate the modification of its contract with Iteris Inc. for further design development and engineering support services during construction for the Metro Orange Line (MOL) Extension Project, as well as for final design services to support acceleration of the MOL project.

The modification could potentially increase the total contract value from approximately $6 million to $10.5 million.

The MOL is a 14-mile-long dedicated transitway operated by Metro in the San Fernando Valley, with the planned four-mile extension extending the line from the existing Canoga Park-and-Ride lot to the Chatsworth Metrolink Station.

The Project includes: busway, new station platforms, new stations, bikeway and transportation enhancements/greenway, and an over-crossing/grade-separation over active railway tracks and streets, providing direct access into the Chatsworth Metrolink Station.

Metro's original contract, awarded to Iteris in April 2007, covered environmental engineering reports and preliminary engineering. A contract extension would expand Iteris' contribution through the development of design/build documents and assistance to the design/build contractor during the construction phase of the project, which could last through 2012.
