Utah taps HDR for streetcar design services

Posted on September 15, 2011

The Utah Transit Authority (UTA) recently hired HDR to provide preliminary engineering, with the option to provide final design and design services during construction, for the Sugar House Streetcar project in Salt Lake City and South Salt Lake City.

The proposed two-mile streetcar line is jointly owned by the UTA, South Salt Lake and Salt Lake City. Project goals include designing and developing a transit corridor with an emphasis on economic potential, livability and walkability.

HDR had teamed with the three entities to prepare a financial plan, environmental assessment, conceptual engineering and a successful TIGER II grant to move the project to construction.

As part of the new contract, HDR will provide preliminary engineering and final design services for the track work, structures, drainage, utility relocations, stations, street reconstruction and at-grade crossings.

Construction costs are estimated to be approximately $37 million, with the streetcar opening as early as 2013.
