The Ogden BRT project team celebrated the grand opening of the Weber State University Wildcat Shuttle. This clean-air electric shuttle will service three campus stations every 5-10 minutes on a dedicated 1-mile alignment, providing students with a green transportation option. Congratulations!
The team on the Mid-Coast Corridor project completed the final cutover for the Elvira to Moreno Double Track Project, a supplement of the Mid-Coast Corridor program. This was the most complicated Mid-Coast supplement contract with six phases of temporary track shifts and configurations in some areas all while accommodating live rail traffic of over 50 trains a day. This supplement is the second heavy rail segment that has been fully upgraded as part of the project; the first was the San Diego River Double Track project which was put into service in February.

Hats off to our Pursuit and Operations leaders and their teams for being successful proposers on UTA.'s Bus Rapid Transit job and TriMet's Red Line Extension Project.
The team in Utah received a letter informing us that we were the successful bidder on the Ogden to Weber State Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) CM/GC project. This is our first true BRT project and represents a big win for our company. The project is for a 5.3-mile BRT from Ogden Station (which we partially constructed on the FrontRunner project) to Weber State University.
In addition, we were informed by TriMet that we were the successful proposer on the MAX Red Line Extension and Reliability Improvements Project. Pre-construction should begin just after the first of the year, with construction from April 2021 through December 2023.
