Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority collection of Metro Red Line construction progress photographs consists of photos, 35mm negatives, contact sheets, proof approval sheets, correspondence, cassette tapes, and video cassette tapes transferred from the construction company to the Southern California Rapid Transit District (SCRTD) and the Rail Construction Corporation by construction company Ralph M. Parsons Corp., Deleuw, Cather & Co. and Dillingham Corporation (PDCD). The material in this collection was created between the years 1987 and 1992 when the first segment of the Red Line was being built.
SCRTD was created on August 22, 1964 to serve the urbanized Southern California region, including Los Angeles County, San Bernardino County, Orange County, and Riverside County, replacing LAMTA and ten different private bus companies in the Southern California region. SCRTD was placed in charge of creating a heavy rail public transportation system for Southern California, and for planning for bus improvements.
