    Dear Mr. Welch and Mr. Comorre:

    Environmental Intelligence, LLC (EI) has been retained by the City of Beverly Hills (COBH) and the Los

    Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) to serve as the independent compliance

    monitor (ICM) during construction of the Purple Line Extension Project. Monitoring is required to ensure

    that construction is in compliance with (1) the Permit titled "Demolition and Public Right-of-Way Use

    Permit for the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority and its Contractor to Clear All

    Buildings and Existing Improvements at 9430 Wilshire Boulevard, Install Noise Monitoring Equipment

    and Sound Walls for Future Construction and a Laydown Area for the Wilshire/Rodeo Station of Section

    Two of the Purple Line Extension Project" (Dated June 5th, 2018); (2) the Permit titled "The Demolition

    and Clearing of all Buildings and Existing Improvements at 9383-9393 and 9395-9399 Wilshire Boulevard,

    Installation of Sound Walls, and Relocation of City Owned Utilities in Preparation for Construction and

    Staging for Section Two of the Purple Line Extension Project" (Dated November 6th, 2018); and (3) the

    "Memorandum of Agreement for Contract C1120 of the Purple Line Extension Project - Between the City

    of Beverly Hills and the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority" (Final Version 62).

    The following information summarizes the ICM monitoring activities that occurred at the Segment 2 site

    (Rodeo Station site) during the week of May 19, 2019 – May 25, 2019. Construction activities were not

    conducted on May 19 or May 25, 2019.

    Construction activities during the week included setting up lane closures; utility survey; vacuum truck

    excavation of pothole spoils; pavement grinding and sawcutting; installing steel plates; shoring installation;

    cold patching; sweeping on Wilshire Boulevard; perimeter excavation, backfilling and compaction testing

    within Reeves yard; excavating to reach the sewer line; installing and leveling asphalt; and water application

    for fugitive dust control within Reeves and Canon yards. In addition, EI ICMs conducted sound monitoring

    near the back alley of the Beverly Hills High School bungalows adjacent to the project site. EI ICMs were

    present during all construction activities and conducted routine noise measurements at selected noise

    monitoring locations as well as compliance checks in accordance with the MOAs and associated

    attachments, exhibits, traffic closure notifications, and traffic management plans. At the conclusion of each

    work shift, daily monitoring reports were prepared by each ICM. Attachment B (Daily Monitoring Reports)

    provides detailed daily monitoring reports and photographs of construction activities.
