AECOM Technology Corp. said Thursday it has won a $10.6 million contract for Phase 2 of the New Orleans Streetcar Expansion project. The project extends streetcar service a mile beyond current Rampart/St. Claude operations into the French Quarter and other historic neighborhoods. As well, AECOM will provide two environmental assessments for proposed future extensions of the St. Claude line and the Loyola line. 

“We are honored to continue our long history of successfully delivering transit projects to New Orleans,” said AECOM Chairman and CEO John M. Dionisio. “This important project will help contribute to the ongoing revival and growth of New Orleans.”
