Miami-Dade Transit to hold contractor meeting for Metrorail extension


Later this month, Miami-Dade Transit (MDT) will host an informational meeting for contractors and subcontractors on the first phase of the Orange Line Metrorail extension project.

Agency officials will provide information on and present the upcoming construction contract procurement for the Orange Line – Phase 1: Miami Intermodal Center/Earlington Heights Connector, which will run 2.4 miles from the existing Earlington Heights Metrorail station to the Miami Intermodal Center (MIC), adjacent to Miami International Airport. MDT plans to advertise construction bids the first week of March. Construction on the $290 million project is scheduled to begin in late 2008 and conclude in late 2011.

Under Phase 2, the North Corridor Metrorail Extension, MDT will build a 9.5-mile extension to the Broward County Line. Phase 3, the East-West Corridor Metrorail Extension, calls for a 10- to 13-mile extension from the MIC Airport Metrorail station to Florida International University.
