HNTB to consult on $4.14B BART extension

Posted on April 28, 2004

HNTB Corp. was selected by the Santa Clara (Calif.) County Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) for preliminary engineering, final design and construction services for the 10.3-mile Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) Line Segment Extension. This project is the first leg of the $4.14 billion, 16.3-mile extension of BART into Milpitas, downtown San Jose and Santa Clara. Construction on the project, which will ultimately carry an average of 83,600 weekday riders, could begin as early as 2006 and run through 2013. The extension will be funded primarily by the VTA with an 80% local match from the VTA's local tax measure, and 20% from state and federal funds.
