An AECOM Technology Corp. joint venture with Rummler, Klepper & Kahl LLP was awarded an eight-year, $60-million program management contract by the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA).

The work is for the program management of major capital projects in Maryland involving new mass transit initiatives, including the Red Line, the Purple Line and the Corridor Cities Transitway light rail projects, which are currently in the planning and environmental phases of project development.

Under the contract, the joint venture team will be responsible for project management of the Purple Line as well as systems preservation, enhancement and expansion for all of MTA's existing transport modes, including bus, metro subway, light rail, Maryland Area Regional Commuter Rail, commuter bus, paratransit and freight.
