The project involves the design and construction of twin bored tunnels for future Purple Line subway service spanning approximately 2.6 miles between Century City and the VA Hospital in Westwood. The subway extension will provide a high-capacity, high-speed, dependable transit alternative for those traveling to and from Los Angeles’ Westside.

Tutor Perini said it is currently working on the Purple Line Extension Section 2 Project, which includes tunnelling and construction of new stations in Beverly Hills and Century City. The company is also currently performing substantial work on San Francisco’s Central Subway extension to Chinatown; California’s High-Speed Rail system, which will eventually connect San Francisco and Los Angeles; New York’s East Side Access project; and Washington State’s Alaskan Way Viaduct Replacement project.

Contract award for the Purple Line Section 3 Tunnels Project is expected in the next 30 to 60 days, with notice to proceed anticipated soon thereafter. Substantial completion is anticipated in the summer of 2022.
