Hill International to manage L.A. Metro Gold Line

Posted on February 11, 2009

Hill International has been selected by the Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority, an affiliate of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), to provide program management services in connection with design and construction of the $458 million Phase 2A of the Foothill Extension.

 

Construction will extend the Metro Gold Line from its current terminus in East Pasadena through the cities of Arcadia, Monrovia, Duarte, Irwindale and Azusa, and will create nearly 30,000 direct, indirect and induced jobs.

 

Hill's responsibilities as program manager will include overseeing the implementation of a design/build contract including design, construction, quality assurance/quality control, safety, community involvement, business impact, environmental mitigations, maintenance of traffic oversight and related issues.

 

Under the Construction Authority's schedule, the project could be completed by December 2013 if it receives funding from Metro by 2010.
