AECOM Technology Corp. was awarded a $35.5-million contract by the City of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, for its Southeast to West light rail transit (LRT) expansion.

Under the contract, the company will provide preliminary engineering design services for the Southeast LRT line from downtown Edmonton to Mill Woods and the West LRT line from Lewis Estates to downtown Edmonton.
