Gold Line proposals submitted

Three design-builder proposals were submitted to the Foothill Extension Construction Authority Thursday morning for Phase 2A of the Gold Line Foothill Extension, the 11.5 miles of  track, stations, crossings, systems, maintenance facility, and more from Pasadena to Azusa, according to said Habib F. Balian, CEO of the Construction Authority.

The three design-build teams short-listed last year are (in alphabetical order): (1) Foothill Transit Constructors, a Kiewit-Parsons Joint Venture; (2) Shimmick/URS/Stacy and Witbeck Joint Venture; and (3) Skanska/Balfour Beatty Joint Venture.

Each proposal will go through a significant evaluation process, including review by multiple technical evaluation committees. Proposals will be evaluated on a number of criteria, and will result in an award to the team providing the “best value.”  This methodology assures the Authority will hire the team that not only provides an efficiently-priced bid, but also proposes the best personnel and processes for delivering a high-quality project on time and on budget.
