The California High-Speed Rail Authority (CHSRA) hired Scott Jarvis as assistant chief program manager. Jarvis, under the direction of Frank Vacca, CHSRA's chief program manager, will provide oversight in the project delivery functions, transportation and commercial planning, right-of-way and environmental planning.
“Scott Jarvis has extensive background knowledge in multiple areas for major transportation projects in California, including contract management, construction and engineering,” said Jeff Morales, CHSRA CEO. “His breadth of knowledge, combined with his many years of experience ensures that he will provide CHSRA with much-needed expertise in moving this first-in-the nation project forward.”
Jarvis comes from the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), where he was serving as the assistant chief of construction. Within that role, he was responsible for overseeing and executing the statewide construction program, consisting of approximately 650 projects valued at more than $12 billion. Prior to this position, he has held several other management positions at Caltrans since he started with the department as an engineer in 1986.
