Rincon Consultants is under contract to WSP (formerly Parsons Brinckerhoff) to provide Impact Analysis studies for Biological Resources, Cultural, Paleontology, Tribal and Historical Resources and Hazardous Materials in support of the EIR/EIS for the West Santa Branch Transit Corridor Environmental Study Project.
When completed, the Metro West Santa Ana Branch will span approximately twenty miles from Downtown Los Angeles to the City of Cerritos. A portion of alignment will utilize abandoned Pacific Electric Rail right-of-way, as well as a combination of local streets and private and Metro-owned rail right-of-way.
Metro is currently considering a variety of project alternatives and segments that include underground, at-grade and aerial construction. The project has been identified as one of Metro’s “28 by 28” key transportation projects which will be completed in time for the Los Angeles 2028 Olympics.
Rincon’s diverse team of experts is assisting with the fatal flaws analysis for the project alignment alternatives and is preparing technical studies to address impacts related to each subject matter.
