The Ruby Junction Facility is an operations and maintenance facility serving TriMet’s light rail system; SWI built the original facility in 2003. The facility expansion is intended to support the 7.3-mile Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail Transit project. The facility will provide additional light rail vehicle (LRV) train storage, maintenance bays, and operational equipment for the new Portland-Milwaukie line set to open in fall 2015. The Ruby Junction expansion will accommodate up to 18 new LRVs to serve passenger demand between 2015 and 2030. The project includes site preparation, grading and drainage, utility relocation, modification of existing buildings, new building, track and pavement construction, lighting, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, fire protection, maintenance equipment installation, and landscaping.
