PB joint venture named GEC in Maryland

Posted on August 5, 2011

PB/RK&K, a joint venture of Parsons Brinckerhoff and RK&K in association with AECOM, was selected to serve the Maryland Transit Administration as an on-call general engineering consultant for statewide transportation projects. 

Under its contract PB/RK&K will provide project management, project controls, environmental, structural, tunneling, rolling stock, and train signal engineering services during the preliminary and final design phase of any open-ended transportation project throughout the state.

In addition, PB/RK&K will perform the associated safety and security, and quality assurance functions for these projects.    

PB/RK&K's principal assignment is the design of the proposed Red Line, a 14-mile light rail system that would extend from Woodlawn in Baltimore County into Baltimore City, through Edmondson Village, West Baltimore, downtown Baltimore, Inner Harbor East, Fells Point and terminate at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center Campus.

The alignment includes 15 surface stations, five underground stations, one mile of aerial structure and approximately four miles of dual-track tunnel.

Final design is expected to be completed by 2016.
