Ardurra provides construction management, inspection and special / deputy inspection and testing services for this 15,000-square foot regional terminal on 15 acres along Crenshaw Boulevard near the 405 Freeway. The hub for Torrance Transit, the City of Torrance’s multi-line bus service, will connect the carrier’s routes with those of other providers. The Torrance Transit Center is also anticipated to connect with the Metro Green Line as part of the Green Line Master Plan. The terminal will be constructed to LEED Gold standards and will be served by eight bus bays. Plans call for a passenger drop-off zone, layover space, and a parking lot with about 250 spaces.
The project is being constructed in two phases. The completed Phase 1 focused on rough-grading the site and building the underground drainage system. During Phase 2, includes the buildings and parking lot, as well as circulation roads, utilities. Related off-site improvements include construction of a cul de sac extension of 208th Street and widening of Crenshaw Boulevard for a new right turn pocket and traffic signal improvements. Construction is expected to continue 12 to 14 months.
