San Fernando Valley Bus Rapid Transit Corridor

AVA's Role
AVA is responsible for preliminary engineering phase Landscape Design for this fourteen mile Bus Rapid Transit Corridor, connecting North Hollywood Metro Rail Station to Warner Center in the San Fernando Valley.

 
Client
Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority

Project Description
This 14-mile corridor will be a dedicated high-speed bus corridor that will occupy a former rail alignment. There will be twelve stations along the route. The corridor provides a vital transit link between the North Hollywood subway station, and the Warner Center in the San Fernando Valley, connecting commercial, educational, religious, residential, recreational, and transportation facilities. AVA had provided conceptual site planning for 75 alternate potential light rail station sites on five alternate alignments. AVA provided visual impact considerations of stations and segments between stations. AVA identified joint development opportunities and prepared station site plans and reports. The bus rapid transit corridor is being designed to convert into a light rail corridor in the future. AVA coordinated preliminary engineering design with architects, other consultants, and the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority for the full length of the transit corridor. The work supported an on-going EIS/EIR effort. AVA presented its design concepts to numerous community and civic organizations and achieved consensus for its design. Specific attention was given to the identification of native, drought-tolerant vegetation, that would be compatible with the transit corridor. The contract bid documents were prepared for this Design Build contract. AVA is providing construction support services during the Design-Build Period.
