The Project Team

(Shea) in association with Parsons Transportation Group (Parsons) as lead designer and L.K.

STS is a consortium of construction and design professionals who are among the “best in the business” in the design-build transportation industry. Combined we have decades of experience in Los Angeles and throughout the region.

We understand that this project – with tunneling deep through the heart of Los Angeles – will require technical expertise and sensitivity within the community. We are committed to working with Metro, the City, local businesses, and the community to ensure that there are open lines of communications leading up to and during construction. Our commitment is to not only design and build the best project, but also to keep everyone safe and informed.
