At approximately 8:50 a.m. today a construction failure occurred at Metro Division 13, a new bus operating division being built in downtown Los Angeles.
Workers were pouring concrete in the upper parking deck of the southeast corner of building B when pour watchers noticed something was amiss. The workers on site immediately cleared the area before the top level collapsed. Thanks to these safety measures, there were no injuries and all 180 workers on the project site were accounted for.
Division 13 has been under construction since late 2012. When completed, the facility will serve 200 buses and approximately 500 employees.
