Regional Connector Constructors, a joint venture of Skanska USA Civil West California District Inc.Traylor Brothers Inc., with Kiewit and Hatch Mott MacDonald, has been awarded a $927.2 million contract from LACMTA (Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority) to design and build the Regional Connector Transit Project light rail line in downtown Los Angeles.


On April 16, the LACMTA recommended to its board of directors that Regional Connector Constructors be awarded the contract. The board voted on the recommendation and gave the official go-ahead on April 24.

LACMTA said Skanska/Traylor attained the highest overall ranking among four bidders, with the highest technical and evaluated pricing scores. Skanska/Traylor also told LACMTA it planned to complete construction 115 days early and would absorb the cost of any LACMTA- or subcontractor-caused delays.

The LACMTA board also approved an additional $39.9 million for the Regional Connector Life-of-Project budget, bringing the total to $967.1 million.
