HDR wins Calif. rail contract

Posted on March 3, 2010

San Bernardino Associated Governments selected HDR to help develop the Redlands First Mile Project, which will extend Metrolink commuter rail service to a new proposed multi-model transit center in downtown San Bernardino, Calif. The first phase of the fast-track project as a construction cost of more than $50 million and is scheduled for completion in mid-2013.

HDR will provide services including preliminary and final engineering, environmental documentation and permitting, right-of-way acquisition, transit-oriented development (TOD) assistance and other potential on-call services for the project.

The project is a critical part of a larger vision for the San Bernardino Associated Governments and the cities of San Bernardino and Redlands in creating a downtown urban TOD.

The new hub will offer increased opportunities for transit, including a potential stop for future high-speed rail, and economic development benefits that will lead to a revitalized of the downtown area as well as cities along the travel corridor.
