AECOM’s services will include supporting the Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority in developing the advanced conceptual engineering for the project and completing any necessary environmental reviews of the project.
The project would extend light rail service from the APU/Citrus College Station, which is currently under construction, in the city of Azusa to the future stations in Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont and Montclair. The project includes six new light rail stations with parking facilities, several dozen at-grade street crossings, two new grade-separated crossings, nearly a dozen traction power substations and all other necessary facilities to support the light rail extension within a shared corridor throughout with heavy rail. Residual Measure R funding for the Foothill Gold Line is being used for this design effort; although no construction funding has yet been secured. The agency anticipates the cost to build the extension to Montclair will be just under US$1 billion.
“Having previously served as lead design manager for the Metro Gold Line Eastside Extension, AECOM is excited to continue supporting the Foothill Gold Line in fulfilling its mandate and providing the services needed to bring light rail transit service back to the vibrant communities along the Azusa-to-Montclair line,” stated James de la Loza, AECOM senior vice president of transportation, Americas.
