The Southern California Regional Rail Authority (SCRRA) has awarded a contract worth up to $10 million to a joint venture of J.L. Patterson & Associates Inc. and STV Inc. for on-call professional engineering design services for the Metrolink regional/commuter rail system.

The JLP/STV team will collaborate on various Metrolink capital and rehabilitation transportation projects in Southern California over a three-year period. Potential projects include grade crossing safety improvement, rehabilitation of track and structures, main line track and siding extensions, station construction and expansions, Los Angeles Union Station reconstruction to accommodate high speed rail, grade separations, Perris Valley Line expansions, Redlands first-mile extensions, a Raymer to Bernson double-track project, and third-party projects.

“Metrolink has several noteworthy projects in the pipeline and we are gratified to have the chance to work with them to fulfill their project goals,” said JLP President Jacqueline Patterson. “We are thrilled to continue our involvement with the Metrolink system and provide better transportation solutions to the citizens of Southern California.”
