Project Budget Summary

  • Construction Budget

    • 7 of 18 construction packages have been negotiated in an amount

    • totaling $138,795,034

    • Currently under running the revised construction budget

  • Project Budget

    • All tasks are within the revised budget

    • Remaining significant risks to the budget include:

    • - Contracts yet to be negotiated

      • Contractor claims

      • Farmdale crossing

      • Yard & storage facility

      • Use of contaminated soil in embankment approaches to

      • aerial structures

Phase 1 Project Status

Project Schedule Summary

  • FFP is currently showing a 16 week delay to Substantial Completion

    • Impacts associated with the Segment A3 Trench work

    • Contractor is developing an alternative sewer design for City approval

    • Authority has asked contractor for a recovery schedule

  • Other areas of Potential Delay

    • Location and layout of Service and Inspection Facility

    • Metro funded enhancements at the Blue Line Tie-In

    • Aerial structures at La Cienega, La Brea and Ballona Creek

    • Any changes to the Farmdale crossing


  • Exposition light rail transit project

    Phase 1 Project Status

    Project Issue Summary

    • Service and Inspection Facility

      • Originally located adjacent to Long Beach Blue Line Yard on Edison Property

      • Edison will not allow permanent facilities under existing power lines

      • Staff evaluating alternative sites

  • Additional Environmental Studies

    • Relocation of Traction Power Substations 3 & 4 require Environmental Assessment

    • Modified location and layout of Service and Inspection Facility Alternatives require Environmental Assessment or Supplemental EIS/EIR

    • Any potential changes to the Farmdale crossing


  • Exposition light rail transit project

    Phase 1 Project Status

    Project Issue Summary

    • Sewer Pipe Cracking Along Exposition at USC

      • Approximately 1,200 feet of newly installed sewer pipe has cracked and will need to be replaced

      • Will uncover approximately 200 feet of 15-inch pipe to evaluate cause of failure and need for replacement

      • Remaining pipe will be replaced in March or April 2008
