The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, commonly known as Metro, has issued a Request for Proposals seeking early assistance from the private sector to jointly develop plans for the massive Sepulveda Transit Corridor Project. Metro’s RFP seeks a pre-development agreement with up to two private sector proposers to assist in the planning and design of this mega-project a fixed guideway transit line connecting the San Fernando Valley to the Westside, and ultimately Los Angeles International Airport. Once project development is complete, the private project developer would have an opportunity to submit a proposal to build the line, potentially accelerating construction and improving project performance.

The transit line would provide a new travel option in the perpetually congested 405 freeway corridor through the Sepulveda Pass, giving motorists for the first time a high-speed, high-capacity transit alternative to driving. This effort would mark the first time a PDA approach was used to deliver a transit project in North America. PDAs have been used to deliver complex mega-projects in other parts of the world.

A PDA would enable early contractor involvement in the project, allowing for innovations in design, construction approach and operations. A private project developer would participate in defining and designing the project concept together with Metro with input from community stakeholders. Private project developer teams that are awarded a PDA would provide design and engineering to support development of the project, constructibility reviews and cost estimates. This information would also be included in the project’s official environmental review process, which is expected to begin in 2020.
