LAN part of construction management team for Caltrain improvements

Posted on May 7, 2019

The Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board, the governing body for the Caltrain commuter rail transit service between San Francisco, San Jose, and Gilroy, has selected civil engineering firm Lockwood, Andrews & Newnam Inc. (LAN) as part of the MNS Engineers On-Call Construction Management team for Caltrain infrastructure improvements.

Caltrain serves 32 stations along the 77-mile corridor, running approximately 90 weekday trains, including baby bullet, limited, and local trains. As part of Caltrain’s modernization effort, the Joint Powers Board is implementing a capital program consisting of a series of construction projects. The capital program will support Caltrain’s ultimate goal of providing electrified service from San Francisco to Gilroy.

Some of the projects under the capital program include grade separations, station upgrades, bridge replacements, crossings improvements, and other infrastructure along the corridor. Over the next five years, LAN will serve as a sub-consultant to MNS Engineers on these projects. As part of the MNS Engineers team, LAN will provide resident construction managers, constructability reviews, quality assurance, and construction observation services.
