This marks our 6th MTA’s Design Build project in last 4 years. PacRim Engineering is proud to be part of this exciting ride. The Purple Line Westside Extension is on the verge of having a designer and builder. In less than three weeks, the Metro board will be voting on whom to award the design-build contract for the 3.9-mile Purple Line extension from Koreatown toward Beverly Hills. The Metro staff made a recommendation July 7 of who the board should select for the $1.636 billion design-build contract: Skanska, Traylor Bros., and J.F. Shea, a Joint Venture (STS). Once the Westside Extension is complete, the Metro Purple Line will run from Wilshire and Western in Koreatown to Wilshire and La Cienega in Beverly Hills.
