Sound Transit has awarded a seven-year, $75.5 million construction management contract for the Northgate Link Extension to a joint venture between Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. and CH2M HILL.
The Jacobs/CH2M HILL team currently is working on Sound Transit's University Link light-rail extension that will connect downtown Seattle and the University of Washington campus to the north. The Northgate Link will extend the line 4.2 miles farther north of the campus to Northgate, Wash.
The Northgate project also will include two 3.6-mile, twin-bored tunnels, two underground stations and an arterial guideway with a light-rail station.
The expansion is expected to greatly increase transit capacity in the region, Jacobs Group officials said in a prepared statement.
