AECOM awarded design contract to expand North Metro Rail Line in Denver

AECOM Technology Corporation was awarded a final design contract to assist the Denver Regional Transportation District (RTD) in the first two segments of its North Metro Rail Line.

AECOM will provide design optimization studies and final design for track, stations, affected roadways, MEP (mechanical, electrical, plumbing), landscaping, permitting, drainage and utilities, park 'n rides, walls, eight bridges and transit systems coordination.

The North Metro Rail Line is an 18-mile commuter rail corridor and is part of RTD's FasTracks 120-mile commuter and light-rail expansion program. The corridor will provide access for commuters/passengers from northern suburb communities to the new commuter rail hub at Denver's Union Station, which also was designed by AECOM.

"AECOM's previous experience delivering innovation and creativity to RTD and our design-build client, Kiewit Western, on Denver Union Station brought our team credible and relevant experience to apply to this project and positioned us well for the North Metro Rail Line win," said AECOM Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John Dionisio. "We are extremely honored to remain a trusted partner with our clients, the city and county of Denver and other stakeholders."
