Gateway Center Bus Plaza

Los Angeles, CA


Creating a focal point for bus service to the Gateway Center, the Bus Plaza allows riders to connect with other transit modes. The plaza is made up of 90,000 SF of interlocking English brick pavers laid on a sand bed over a waterproofed suspended slab over the parking structure. Due to extreme loads and movement that constant bus traffic imposes on the paving, a comprehensive mock-up testing procedure was employed which resulted in the English paving system. The Bus Plaza includes an 11-berth bus loading and unloading facility.
