The Mid-City/Exposition ( Expo) Light Rail Project consists of a new two-track light rail system that connects to the existing Metro Blue Line (MBL) at Flower Street and Washington Boulevard in downtown Los Angeles. The total route length from the Flower Street / Washington Boulevard Junction to the End of the Line in Culver City is approximately 411.000 feet (7.8 miles).
The LACMTA Exposition Transit Corridor Phase 2 will extend westward to Santa Monica from the Metro Expo Line Culver City Station. This 6.6 mile double track light rail will expand LACMTA’s system to 87 stations and over 93 miles of rail to destinations across L.A. County.
This project is the first of its kind to be awarded in the U.S. Rail Industry. It is the first Positive Train Control (PTC) system that complies with the Rail Safety Improvement Act of 2008. The Rail Safety Improvement Act requires all passenger and freight railroads to install PTC by 2015. The overall project scope includes design, installation, documentation, testing, integration, and commissioning of PTC technology on the 512-miles of the Metrolink commuter rail system.
The Draper TRAX Line is a 3.8 mile (Double Track) light rail extension of the UTA Sandy-Salt Lake Line from its terminus at 10000 South in Sandy to Pioneer Road in Draper. Being built within the UTA-owned rail corridor, the Draper TRAX extension features 3 new passenger stations.
This design build project involves the transit improvements at the historic Denver Union Station making it a multi-modal transportation hub. Construction, which began in February 2010, includes: an underground bus terminal, an eight-track commuter rail station, plazas, relocation of the light rail station, and street improvements. This multifaceted project covering 40 acres in Denver’s Central Platte Valley will integrate rail and bus service, along with taxis, bicyclist and pedestrians, into a dynamic urban center.
The Metrolink Communications and Signals upgrade contract consists of improvements, both capital and rehabilitation, to the Metrolink Railroad spanning 350 miles through five counties in the Southern California Region.
This bid-build project involved constructing 19 storage tracks, 5 service and inspection tracks and 4 yard leads to support DART’s expanding rail systems. The work included procurement of the signaling system, overhead catenary system (OCS), and traction electrification system for the storage yard, a service and inspection facility and vehicle wash station.
This design-build project will extend BART service 5.4 miles south from the existing terminal station in Fremont to Warm Springs, in Northern California’s East Bay area. A double-track line will be constructed from the Fremont Station, through Central Park Subway, past a future passenger station site at Irvington, and then along-side Union Pacific Rail Road (UPRR) tracks to an existing UPRR switching yard at Warm Springs.
As part of the 20-mile, four new lines double tracked light rail extension to the Houston Light Rail System, Mass. Electric Construction Co. (MEC) is providing a design-build systems pacakge, and has been contracted to furnish and install the specialized systems transit work.
This design-build project, in which Mass. Electric is a subcontractor to Foothill Transit Constructors, a Kiewit/Parsons JV, involves constructing 11.5 miles of Double Light Rail Track from the terminus of the existing Gold Line in Pasadena to Citrus Avenue in Azuza, California.
