Sonoma's SMART to begin commuter work

Posted on January 10, 2012

The SMART board of directors voted unanimously to award the contract to Alameda-based Stacy and Witbeck/Herzog, a joint venture that will work on track, bridges, station platforms and grade crossings. For the full story, click here.
