 BOISE, Idaho, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ --Morrison Knudsen Corp. (MK) (NYSE: MRN) announced today that MK has signed agreements with two prominent aerospace companies to develop high-technology mass transit products such as those that would be required as part of a program of the Los Angeles County Transit Commission (LACTC).
 The agreements were signed with Lockheed Missiles and Space Co., Inc. (NYSE:LK) and Hughes Aircraft Co. to develop the mass transit products, initially to take part in LACTC's Advanced Transit Product Development Program (ATPDP).
 In a program to create permanent jobs in Southern California, LACTC has included participation in the ATPDP in an upcoming contract to manufacture 87 transit cars.
