Glendora to Montclair Project & Procurement Update

At their January 2017 meeting, the Board of Directors approved an updated project schedule for the 12.3-mile, six-station Glendora to Montclair extension. The updated schedule is based on detailed constructability reviews conducted as part of the advanced conceptual engineering phase, and anticipates breaking ground on the project in October.

Two contracts are planned for the project. The first, to be awarded later this year, is for utility relocation work. The second, to begin procurement toward the end of this year and to be awarded in late-2018, is the Alignment contract. The Alignment contract is anticipated to be a design-build procurement, and will include all aspects of the light rail extension project, including design and construction of the freight and Metrolink tracks and Metrolink Claremont Station relocation/reconstruction, as well as the design and construction of the light rail system.

The Construction Authority is hosting an Industry Workshop in May (see above) to go over the utility relocation procurement and provide a project update and procurement schedule for the Alignment contract. Details will be sent out soon on this event and how to register.

Below is the updated Glendora to Montclair work plan, approved by the Construction Authority board in January 2017. For more information on the updated schedule, click here to read the press release.
