LA Metro Division 20 Portal Widening and Turnback Facility

On June 28, 2018, the LA Metro Board approved the recommendation to award DHS with a Construction Management Support Services contract for their upcoming Division 20 Portal Widening and Turnback Facility project.

This project aims to accommodate increased service levels on the Metro Red and Purple Lines. To achieve this, Metro is planning facility improvements to the Division 20 Rail Yard, located within the Arts District in downtown Los Angeles. Improvements include: widening of the heavy rail tunnel portal south of the US-101 freeway, a new turnback facility and expansion and reconfiguration of rail storage tracks. With these improvements, new tracks and switches will allow for improved service times at Union Station and throughout the Metro Red/Purple Line system.
