Mid-Coast Corridor Transit Project, San Diego

In May, the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) released its Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement/Subsequent Environmental Impact Report for the Mid-Coast Corridor Transit Project.

The $1.98 billion light rail project is the proposed extension of the Blue Line transit service from downtown San Diego to University City. 

The proposed 11-mile extension would add eight new stations, including stops at major destinations, such as La Jolla Village Square; University of California, San Diego; and the Westfield University Towne Centre Transit Center.  An additional station at the San Diego Veterans Hospital is also being considered.

One truly unique benefit the project will offer is a one-seat ride from the Mexican border at the San Ysidro Transit Center and other communities south of Downtown San Diego all the way up to University City, a 30-mile passage. University City is the second largest employment area outside of Downtown San Diego.  The new extension will also connect other Trolley lines currently serving major business and residential hubs such as South Bay, East County and Mission Valley.

HDR|InfraConsult, in association with TY Lin International, is the project management consultant (PMC) for the project. Led by Tom Jenkins, principal consultant for public transportation planning and development, PMC staff serves as an extension of the SANDAG project team, covering key positions including the project manager, deputy project manager, design manager and the project controls manager. Responsibilities include providing managerial and technical advisory services as well as project management of both the preliminary engineering and environmental clearance phases.

The PMC team is also responsible for assisting SANDAG in guiding the project through the often complex FTA New Starts Project Development process.  Scheduled to begin revenue operations in late 2018, the Mid-Coast Corridor Transit Project will improve public access to neighboring regional activity centers as well as offer a more reliable travel alternative to local and regional destinations for residents, commuters and visitors.
