Leveraging experience gained from designing four parking facilities and an on-grade lot for the LA Metro L Line (Gold) extension from Pasadena to Azusa, Watry Design was awarded the design-build contract to design bridging documents for the phase 2 extension from Glendora to Pomona.
Watry Design worked closely with Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority to design surface parking to support the Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne and Pomona Metro stations.
Each lot is situated on a space-constrained or irregular-shaped site, making it a challenge to meet the required stall count while maintaining efficient vehicular circulation and accommodating pick up/drop off space. The Watry team responded to the unique constraints of each site to ensure each layout provided safe passage for pedestrians to and from the station and maximized efficiency.
Our team's successful track record with the L Line (Gold) resulted in being asked to work with Kiewit Building Corp., Inc. to deliver the parking solution through completion of design and construction. This included incorporating a parking access and revenue control system with license plate recognition and pay-on-foot stations, a parking guidance system with dynamic signage that provides real-time parking availability, emergency phones, and bicycle enclosures.
Approximately 5% of stalls will be equipped with EV charging stations, with capacity for up to 10% in the future.
