Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. and CH2M HILL, in a joint venture, received a seven-year, $75.5 million contract from Sound Transit of Seattle, Wash. for the Northgate Link Extension Project.

The Jacobs/CH2M HILL team is currently working together on Sound Transit’s University Link (U-Link) Project, a light-rail extension connecting downtown Seattle and the University of Washington to the north.

The Northgate Link Project is extending the line 4.2 miles farther north from the University to the urban village of Northgate and includes two 3.6-mile twin bored tunnels, two underground stations and an arterial guideway with a light-rail station.

Jacobs Group Vice President Kevin McMahon stated, “We are very pleased to be selected for this important extension project and to have the opportunity to continue leveraging our resources to deliver high quality construction management services for Sound Transit.”
