We are pleased to share that the recently completed Union-Patsaouras Plaza Busway Station in downtown Los Angeles has been named one of ENR California’s 2021 Best Project Winners. The new transit busway station opened to the public in November 2020, and received the honor for Best Airport/ Transit Project in Southern California.
From ENR: “The relocated Patsaouras Bus Plaza provides LA Metro’s transit users easier connections to bus lines serving Union Station. By widening both sides of the 30-year-old El Monte Busway Bridge, the project team created a 200-ft-long, 18-ft-wide concrete platform with benches, ticket machines and wayfinding kiosks, all covered by a steel canopy. An enclosed walkway sits on concrete columns and piles that penetrate the busway bridge deck, providing a seamless pedestrian connection at the transit plaza.”
Located on the east side of the Los Angeles Union Station, The Union Station Patsaouras Bus Plaza Station serves commuters on the Metro Silver Line and other transit buses operating on the El Monte Busway.
Psomas provided electrical consulting services on the project.
