Utah agency to build five light-rail lines


The Utah Transit Authority (UTA) recently awarded a contract to Parsons Brinckerhoff to provide program management consulting services for a capital development program designed to expand transit services throughout the Wasatch Front.

The $3.2 billion program includes building five light-rail and three bus rapid-transit lines. UTA plans to extend light rail to an intermodal hub in Salt Lake City, as well as along the Mid-Jordan, West Valley, Draper and Salt Lake City Airport corridors.

Parsons Brinckerhoff will help the authority develop plans, create a program management and administration system, develop communication initiatives, and select and manage designers and contractors.
