Airport Metro Connector 96th Street Transit Station AA/EIR/NEPA CE

Sixth on the list of the World’s Busiest Airports, Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) sees 70 million passengers a year, and 1,200 flights each day. To help better connect the airport to the region’s passenger rail system, STV, in joint venture, provided planning, design, and environmental services for the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro)’s 96th Street Transit Station, a new light rail and bus station at 96th Street and Aviation Boulevard, located two miles from LAX.

This new multi-modal station will link to an automated people mover, providing connections to rental car centers, parking, and essential LAX facilities. STV prepared operations and cost estimates and coordinated conceptual engineering, quality assurance/quality control, and environmental support for alternative analyses, environmental impact reports, and National Environmental Policy Act Categorial Exclusion for the station. To help minimize environmental impact in the proposed area, STV reviewed mitigation levels and California Environmental Quality Act clearance requirements and documentation for key areas including land use, neighborhood impacts, noise and vibration, air quality, and climate change.
