WMATA Rehab Red Line - Washington, D.C.
This project involves the rehabilitation of the District of Columbia’s oldest transit corridor using multiple procurement methods. This best value fixed price project includes design-build bid items, bid-build bid items, and the remainder is JOC (Job Order Contracting) work. The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) Redline Project covers 6-miles of 3rd rail powered double track in a tunnel and on elevated guide-way. MEC’s scope of work includes:
Other elements of work include ceiling tile replacement, canopy skylight work, information kiosks, and ventilation and air conditioning systems replacement.
MEC must maintain temporary service for traction power and train control including extensive cutover planning to assure no disruption to revenue service. Track access restrictions and limited work hours for many operations make this a very challenging project.
