The Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) will host an industry event next month to encourage small business contractors to get involved in a VTA project that will extend the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) rail service into Santa Clara County, California.

On Feb. 11, VTA will present an overview of the project’s scope and timeline, as well as construction contract and procurement information. After the presentation, small business and disadvantaged business enterprise representatives can meet with the project's prime contractors to learn more about opportunities to participate in the project, VTA officials said in a press release.

The agency is seeking contractors with expertise in heavy civil construction, tunneling, track and system, building demolition and utility relocation.

VTA’s BART Phase II Project is a 6-mile rail extension that will feature 5 miles of single-bore subway, four stations and transit-oriented developments at each future station.
