L.A. Metro’s new light rail line in L.A. County is expected to carry 30,000 daily commuters by 2030.

Iteris Inc. and Gannett Fleming Inc. will work together to provide traffic operations analysis and traffic engineering design services for a new light rail transit system in southern California.

The two-year, $2.05 million contract is for the East San Fernando Valley Light Rail Project, which will have more than 60 signalized intersections. The entire project costs $1.3 billion.

The light rail line is expected to carry 30,000 daily riders by 2040, and will be a key route when Los Angeles hosts the 2028 Olympic games. Groundbreaking is set for 2022, and the project also includes the construction of 14 at-grade stations, mostly in the median of Van Nuys Blvd.

Iteris plans on incorporating advanced design solutions, intersection traffic control technologies and signal system communications to improve safety and efficiency.
