Here's a nice aerial of work on the regional connector behind The Broad Museum next to the Walt Disney Concert Hall in DTLA.

*You can see one of the old remaining traffic tunnels in downtown. As a side note, downtown used to have many hills that with time have been razed, but I think 2 tunnels survive.

This is a shot of Fairfax Decking so far from the roof of the Petersen Automotive Museum. See how the concrete decks contrasts with the black asphalt?

Viewing the photos I believe it would have been much more easier and far less invasive if they used a borring machine instead of the cut and cover method.

They aren't? If i remember correctly, they are in fact using a TBM. Those photos should be the station box, I thought.

That is a pit for a station box which has a lot more involved with it than just the tube and is almost always cut and cover. The tubes connecting stations will definitely be mined by a TBM.

Don't buy it. I haven't seen many subway stations being constructed but if you dig a hole like that in the middle of Tokyo then City hall will be coming crashing down on you !!
Neither Shibuya or any of the Oedo line subway station made such a mess. Not even the Shinagawa station for Chuo Shinkansen they are constructing right now is anywhere near that kind of condition.

Two theories of urban design, Mega density versus the sprawl poster child. Also there is matter of deep bore stations in The US are expensive. ESA and SAS for example.

London has adopted the station box model wherever it can build a station by building a big box - for a start, it helps provide space for all the passengers expected. And when they can't (eg some of the Crossrail stations) they basically do two smaller boxes that are still pretty big and then mine/bore out the station from the big access shaft (which is later used to access the station). The boxes are typically designed to be developed over.

AIRPORT COMMISSIONERS APPROVE FINAL ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT FOR LAX LANDSIDE ACCESS MODERNIZATION PROGRAM


http://lawa.org/newsLAWA.aspx




(Los Angeles, California – March 2, 2017) The Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners (BOAC) today certified the Final Environmental Impact Report (Final EIR) for Los Angeles World Airports’ (LAWA’s) proposed Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP) at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and recommended that the Los Angeles City Council concur and approve the LAMP Project.

“The Final EIR represents the culmination of years of planning by LAWA staff and extensive outreach with our neighbors, the airport community and the general public to develop a comprehensive program that will modernize LAX,” said BOAC President Sean Burton. “We’re proud of everyone’s collective efforts, and we’re excited to enter the next phases of the LAMP Project.”

“The Landside Access Modernization Program would provide certainty, and bring LAX into the modern era for the modern traveler - to ensure that LA is a global gateway,” said LAWA Chief Executive Officer Deborah Flint. “The board’s approval of the final LAMP EIR marks an important milestone and is affirmation that a program designed to improve access to LAX and connect to public transit, would change how our guests and neighbors interact with the airport in many positive ways.”

Today’s meeting included a public hearing, which drew a large crowd in support of the LAMP project. "Today the airport experience is more critical and impactful for business and vacation travel than ever before," said Joseph Czyzyk, chairman and chief executive officer of Mercury Air Group, a LAX tenant. "From passenger experience improvements to connecting mass transit into our airport, and thereby making our roadways better - there is much to applaud with LAMP."

"Loyola Marymount University supports LAX's proposed Landside Access Modernization Program," said Andrew O'Reilly, director of community relations, Loyola Marymount University. "As an LAX neighbor, we are impacted by and aware of airport operations, and we are confident that the proposed updates and improvements are critical to the value of the airport and surrounding areas."

"The project will strengthen the region's economic standing and promote business growth throughout Southern California," said Sarah Golden with the Valley Industry and Commerce Association. "Our local businesses rely on LAX to provide a connection to domestic and foreign markets around the world - VICA is proud to support the Landside Access Modernization Program."

LAMP would reduce vehicle emissions and improve air quality for communities adjacent to LAX and would transform LAX into a modern, state-of-the-art airport servicing passengers, employees and neighbors.

LAMP consists of several primary components: an Automated People Mover (APM) system with six stations that would transport passengers between the CTA and the other main project components located east of the CTA. These other components include a Consolidated Rent-A-Car Facility (ConRAC) and two new Intermodal Transportation Facilities, which include public parking and passenger drop-off and pick-up areas. To provide access to the Metro regional rail system, the APM system would include a station at the Intermodal Transit Facility where it interfaces with Metro’s Airport Metro Connector station at 96th Street/Aviation Boulevard. In addition to the major components listed, LAMP would also include planned roadway improvements throughout the LAX area.

LAWA prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Report (Draft EIR) for LAMP in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), which was released on September 15, 2016. The official comment period for the Draft EIR ran from September 15 through November 15, 2016. Two public meetings were held in October 2016 that allowed the public to learn about LAMP and its components, with attendees able to submit comments following presentations from LAWA staff and consultants.

The Metro Regional Connector project reached a milestone this week


The Metro Regional Connector project reached a milestone this week by installing the last deck panel at 2nd St and Spring St in Downtown LA. Check out this aerial photo from a few weeks back when the temporary decking structure was still coming together. #TBT #DTLA Photo credit: Gary Leonard, 2017.
