- The Skanska USA/Traylor Brothers joint venture is awarded construction of the Regional Connector underground transitway in downtown Los Angeles for a contract sum of US$918 million. The award is made by Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transport Authority.
- Work will begin immediately on the project, which comprises design and construction of a twin-running 3km long light rail transit subway in downtown Los Angeles with three new stations. Project scope also includes construction of an SEM crossover cavern that will allow passengers to transfer between the city's Blue, Expo, Red and Purple Lines. Scheduled completion is October 2020. Skanska is the lead partner in the joint venture, with a 62.5% share. Lead designer is Hatch Mott MacDonald.
- Skanska/Traylor had already been selected as preferred bidder ahead of rival bids from three other joint venture teams: the Dragados/ Sciavone/Southland JV; the Shea/Walsh/Parsons Transportation Group JV and the Shimmick/Obayashi/FCC JV.
