HDR wins Calif. rail contract

San Bernardino Associated Governments selected HDR to help develop the Redlands First Mile Project, which will extend Metrolink commuter rail service to a new proposed multi-model transit center in downtown San Bernardino, Calif. The first phase of the fast-track project as a construction cost of more than $50 million and is scheduled for completion in mid-2013.

HDR will provide services including preliminary and final engineering, environmental documentation and permitting, right-of-way acquisition, transit-oriented development (TOD) assistance and other potential on-call services for the project.

The project is a critical part of a larger vision for the San Bernardino Associated Governments and the cities of San Bernardino and Redlands in creating a downtown urban TOD.

The new hub will offer increased opportunities for transit, including a potential stop for future high-speed rail, and economic development benefits that will lead to a revitalized of the downtown area as well as cities along the travel corridor.
