Board of Directors to consider increasing budget for phase one of Expo Line

At their meeting on Thursday, the Metro Board of Directors will be asked to increase the budget of the first phase of Expo Line by $28 million to settle claims made by the design-build contractor.

If the increase is approved, the total cost of the Expo Line project would rise to about $927 million.

Here is the full report to the Board.

  1. Whoops my bad, maybe it would help if I actually looked at the full report…

  2. It would be interesting to see what the claims are and their implications (i.e. design of the line itself, saftey, or speed issues), Or if they are just management or payment disputes etc.
