Construction is underway on a $73.5-million bus maintenance facility in downtown Los Angeles for the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
The 442,265-square-foot complex at the northeast corner of Vignes Street and Cesar E. Chavez Avenue will house a fleet of 200 buses that run on compressed natural gas. It will include a three-story concrete parking structure, a two-story bus maintenance and office building, and a cash counting facility.
The Metro Division 13 Bus Maintenance and Operations Facility, as it will be known, will also tie into an existing two-level maintenance building at the east side of the parking structure, general contractor McCarthy Building Cos. said.
Completion is set for summer 2014, McCarthy said.
