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 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.
The TRAX Airport Light Rail Project will extend the current TRAX line from the Arena Station, and connect most major Utah sites and destinations to the Salt Lake City International Airport. This new six-mile LRT will provide a direct transfer from the West Station on top of the newly renovated North Temple Viaduct to the FrontRunner Commuter Train – which will eventually connect all commuters from Ogden to Provo.
This project provided a transit alternative to congested roads, and served as a focal point for new development along the Central Avenue corridor and areas east of the Phoenix central business district, including the Sky Harbor Airport, Tempe and Mesa. It is anticipated that the Phoenix Light Rail System will generate approximately 15,300 hours of daily travel-time benefits by 2020.
As America’s first design-build underground transit project, the Tren Urbano-Rio Piedras rapid transit system involved construction of 10.4 miles of track, a one mile long tunnel and two underground stations for the Puerto Rico Highways and Transportation Authority.
As part of a joint venture, Mass. Electric Construction Co. completed design verification and construction of Amtrak’s 157-mile electrified high-speed rail segment between New Haven, CT and Boston, MA in 1998. The line included 224 bridges and several tunnels, the longest being the 4,000-foot Back Bay Tunnel in Boston.
The Portland I-205 Extension Project was seven miles of light rail double track along the I-205 corridor east of Portland. As part of Tri-Met’s South Corridor Expansion, an already successful rail network, the project provides MAX Green Line Light rail service by connecting to the existing transit center at Gateway and proceeding south into Clackamas County along a dedicated rail right of way.
