Delegation of engineers from China visits Crenshaw/LAX Line construction site

A delegation of 32 engineers from China visited a Crenshaw/LAX Line construction site last week while they were participating in the International Conference on Geotechnical and Earthquake Engineering and International Chinese Transportation Professional Association (IACGE/ICTPA).

The visit was one of the highlights of IACGE/ICTPA, an annual conference which rotates internationally between cities and countries.

Michael Pearce, Metro Resident Engineer on the Crenshaw Line project, welcomed the engineers with a presentation. James Brown, Metro Director of Construction Safety, conducted a construction safety orientation regarding project site visitation and personal protection equipment protocol.

Afterward, the delegation visited the Crenshaw/Expo Station where the excavation for the underground station is taking place. The visit was organized by the Metro construction team.
