On August 14, 2019, the Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority Board of Directors awarded the design-build contract for the next segment of the Metro Gold Line light rail system to the Kiewit-Parsons team.
The contract includes an $805.6 million base scope for the first nine-miles of the project from Glendora to Pomona, with a two-year contract option to complete the full 12.3-mile project to Montclair for a total contract amount of $1,186.9 million if additional funds are secured by October 2021.
With the contract awarded, the project will begin major construction in 2020 and be completed to Pomona in 2025, and if the contract option is activated the entire project will be completed altogether to Montclair in 2028.
