METRO GOLD LINE FOOTHILL EXTENSION - Pasadena to Azusa, Calif.
This $503 million design-build project was awarded to Foothill Transit Constructors, a joint venture between Kiewit and Parsons. The project includes final design and construction of 11.5-miles of double light rail main track, 14 new bridges, eight modifications to existing bridges, six stations, three center platforms, three side platforms and a maintenance and operations facility. The project begins in Pasadena in the middle of the I-210 freeway, where Kiewit and Parsons left off on the Gold Line Phase 1 Project, and runs to Citrus College in Azusa, CA. This design-build project includes final design and construction of all aspects of the 11.5-mile rail extension, with the exception of the I-210 Bridge and future station parking facilities. This contract award keeps the first Measure R rail project to go to construction on schedule for a 2015 delivery.
