KOA was retained by Metro to prepare an alternative analysis, conceptual engineering, and final environmental clearance for the East San Fernando Valley transit corridor project. The Corridor extends 9.2 miles from the Metro Orange Line Station to the Sylmar/San Fernando Metrolink Station. The KOA Team screened 26 alignment alternatives as part of this process. The final analysis included a No-Build, Transportation Systems Management (TSM) Alternative, Bus Rapid Transit Alternative with median running and curbside bus lanes, and two Light Rail Transit Alternatives, including at-grade and partial underground operations. The KOA Team also prepared a First/Last Mile plan for the 9.2-mile project.
