Tutor Perini Wins LA Purple Line Contract

Tutor Perini, a construction company, said Tuesday it has received a notice of intent to award a contract from the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority for the Westside Purple Line extension Section 2 project. The contract is valued at more than $1.38 billion.

The project involves construction of a 2.6-mile extension of the subway through Beverly Hills to Century City, the company said. Tutor Perini will serve as the lead partner on its joint venture team with privately-held O&G Industries.

The contract award is expected by the end of January and substantial completion is anticipated in Jan. 2025. Tutor Perini’s portion of the contract value is expected to be included as part of the company’s Q1 backlog.
