A joint venture between Tutor Perini Corp. and O&G Industries Inc. has received a notice of intent to award a $1.4 billion contract for the construction on Metro’s Purple Line Extension in Westwood. Sylmar-based Tutor Perini said the company will build the new Westwood/UCLA station and the Westwood/VA Hospital station. The company is performing design work on the companion Purple Line Extension Section 3 Tunnels project, awarded last year, which will build the tunnels and related systems to connect the stations. Connecticut-based construction company O&G is the other partner in Tutor Perini/O&G Joint Venture, which won the contract for the Section 3 project from the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, or Metro.
