Michael Baker International was awarded a $7.6 million contract by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority to study the I-605/SR-91 interchange, identify improvements and widen a particularly choked three-mile stretch of westbound SR-91 in Los Angeles, Calif.

The road is used by 270,000 vehicles a day.

The project is an extension of previous traffic congestion studies Michael Baker has conducted across Los Angeles.
