Jacobs Engineering to design WMATA's Largo extension


Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. announced May 14 that a subsidiary company is part of the team Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority selected to design and construct the Blue Line Extension to Largo in Prince George’s County, Md.



The 3.1-mile line would be the first extension beyond WMATA’s original 103-mile system; the entire project’s construction would cost an estimated $200 million.



Jacobs would serve as project designer, responsible for all civil, structural and site design; facilities design; and systems design of the expanded transit system, including double tracking, underground/covered structures and aerial structures.



WMATA officials expect to open the line for service by 2004.
