Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority has approved the award of a US£410M (£308.7M) contract to the Frontier-Kemper/Tutor Perini Joint Venture for the Purple Line Extension Section 3 Tunnels Project.
The project involves the design and construction of twin bored tunnels for future Purple Line subway service spanning approximately 4km between Century City and the VA Hospital in Westwood in Los Angeles.
