California authority issues RFP for Foothill extension parking facilities


The Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority in California has issued a request for proposals (RFP) from qualified engineering, design and architectural services firms to complete 85 percent of designs for six intermodal parking facilities as part of the Foothill light-rail extension from Pasadena to Azusa.

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority plans to build one parking facility per future station in the cities of Arcadia, Monrovia, Duarte, Irwindale and Azusa, Calif. The parking facilities will be designed to accommodate buses, cars and bicycles.

The authority will host a pre-proposal conference on Wednesday. The proposals are due May 18.

The 11.5-mile Foothill extension project began in June 2010 and is slated for completion in 2014. Three design-build contracts, totaling more than $500 million, will be awarded for the project. Future extensions also are planned.
