Sound Transit taps joint venture for rail extension

Posted on October 31, 2012

CH2M HILL, a global full-service consulting, design, construction and operations firm, announced that its joint venture with Jacobs Engineering received a contract from Seattle’s Sound Transit for the Northgate Link Extension Project.

The seven-year construction management contract has a value of $75.5 million.

The CH2M HILL/Jacobs team is currently working together on Sound Transit’s University Link (U-Link) Project, a light rail extension connecting downtown Seattle and the University of Washington to the north. The Northgate Link Project will extend the line 4.2 miles farther north from the University to the urban village of Northgate and includes two 3.6-mile twin bored tunnels, two underground stations and an arterial guideway with a light rail station.

The expansion greatly increases transit capacity to the highest ridership corridor in the region.
