Inglewood Transit Connector (ITC) Project Receives Commitment of $1B in FTA Funding

The Inglewood Transit Connector (ITC) Project has officially received commitment of over $1B in federal funds as part of the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) Capital Investment Grant (CIG) program. FTA’s investment is expected to cover 50% of the total cost of the project.

The ITC is a proposed 1.6-mile elevated, fully automated people mover that will address the first/last mile transportation gap between the LA Metro K-Line (Crenshaw/LAX) and Inglewood’s major entertainment, housing, and commercial developments. The ITC originally targeted opening by the 2028 Olympics but is now scheduled to begin operations in 2030.

FTA’s funding commitment signifies recognition of the ITC Joint Power’s Authority (JPA) financial, management, and technical capabilities, as well as the critical importance of providing improved transportation to the Inglewood and broader Los Angeles communities.

DLCE has been involved in the ITC project since 2021, leading Utilities efforts including third-party coordination and engineering. The project site is highly congested and utility relocations represent considerable challenge to timely delivery of the ITC project. DLCE has been working closely with the City of Inglewood, Gannett Fleming, and Antich Consulting Inc to establish Third-Party Agreements and deliver Advanced Utility Relocations wherever feasible. In under just 4 months, DLCE engineers successfully advanced 6000 feet of water mainline relocations from 15% conceptual design to Approved for Construction plans. The waterlines are in the bid stage and construction is expected to begin in March 2024.
