Exposition Light Rail Corridor



Exposition II
Location: Los Angeles, CA
Client: Skanska USA
Construction Cost: $1,500,000,000
Phase 2 of the Exposition Transit Corridor will extend the rail line out to Santa Monica—a 6.6-mile corridor addition from the Phase I terminus in Culver City. This phase includes seven new stations, some with parking, construction of a three-story parking structure, and six post-tensioned concrete bridge structures, the largest spanning more than 2,700 feet in length. The extension will serve an estimated ridership of 4,000 daily riders from Downtown LA to Santa Monica by 2030. The project includes multiple aerial-bridge structures. The bridges are constructed with post-tensioned soffits and decks, structural hinges, stem walls, and a platform. Abutments utilizing CIDH pile foundation systems support each of the structures. Bridge structures are reinforced with up to #18 coupled reinforcing steel.
