AECOM awarded Denver light rail contract

Posted on September 12, 2012

AECOM Technology Corp., a leading provider of professional technical and management support services for government and commercial clients around the world, announced Tuesday that it was awarded a contract to provide final design services for the Denver Regional Transportation District's (RTD) forthcoming I-225 light-rail line.

AECOM will provide final design for a number of elements, including tracks, seven full stations and part of an eighth station, multiple traffic signals and grade crossings, landscaping, permitting, drainage and utilities, park 'n ride areas, eight bridges and transit systems.

The 10.5-mile I-225 line is part of the region's ongoing FasTracks System. It will further link Denver's southern communities to Denver International Airport via the East Line, and will connect the entire region to the rapidly growing Anschutz-Fitzsimons Medical Campus and Aurora City Center. The AECOM team is part of a larger partnership that proposed innovative financing, design and construction to deliver the entire corridor to revenue service scheduled in late 2015, which is several years earlier than currently programmed.

The value of AECOM's contract was not disclosed.
