The long awaited Sound Transit PLA study has been released. The study which has been under review for months was released in response to a public records request by the Laborer’s Union. Sound Transit had wanted to review the study with its officers prior to release.
According to Sound Transit the study shows the PLA Program of Projects achieved most of its objectives except for apprenticeship utilization and clearly documents the issues contractors and the unions had with the PLA program.
It also provides lessons learned should the Sound Transit Board want to go forward with a PLA for the Sound Transit Phase 2 projects. The Board will begin discussion of that question next year. For more information and to view the report click here.
