Bus Stop Accessibility Project

OE provided inspection services on this CDBG-funded bus stop accessibility improvement project in the City of Torrance. The Torrance Transit system has nine bus lines in the City, used to travel between Los Angeles, Redondo Beach, Long Beach, Compton, LAX Airport, Lomita, Crosstown Loop, and Wilmington. The project scope focused on upgrading concrete bus pads at 42 bus stop locations, with 15 additional stops added during construction. The bus stop improvements included signs, posts, and trash receptacle relocations to meet ADA standards, removal and replacement of additional sidewalks, and 4-inch aggregate base with 3.5-inch PCC bus pads. Document control and familiarity with CDBG procedures were essential for this project’s success.
