Location: Sacramento, CA
Cost:  Total Construction Value, Unknown – Study Only
Completion Date: 2003 – Conceptual Planning


As a Joint Venture partner with ENTRANCO, Inc., AVA provided Construction Management Services for the South Sacramento Corridor Light Rail Project.  The project was a six and a half (6 1/2) mile light rail extension with seven (7) passenger stations constructed primarily within an existing Union Pacific Railroad right-of-way.  As Construction Managers, AVA’s responsibilities include:

+  Contract Management                     +  Constructability                   +  Change Order Management and Redesign

+  Office Engineering                           +   Value Engineering              +  Project Close-out

+   Inspection                                         +   RFI Reviews


The Sacramento Intermodal Transportation Center is a dynamic facility that will be a vital hub for the regional ground transportation network, and will ultimately support not only several transit systems, but a thriving commercial, retail, and residential development with recreational and entertainment facilities. The project involved integrating the historic rail depot and related structures into a modern multi-modal facility. It will incorporate numerous transit modes, including Amtrak, the CCJPA Capitol Corridor Commuter, San Joaquin Corridor Rail Lines, Light Rail Transit, Amtrak, Greyhound regional buses, regional transit buses, Union Pacific freight rail traffic, and possibly the future inner and intra-state High-Speed Rail System. Interstate Freeway 5 ramps will be reconfigured and 6th and 7th Streets will have tunneled access below the existing railroad tracks to ease congestion in the area. Pedestrian walkways link up with the existing Railroad Technology Museum (exhibiting old trains) and provide convenient pedestrian linkage to Old Sac (historic Sacramento development which is now a thriving retail/entertainment tourist attraction). The entire development was designed in the context of the old historic railroad depot, which becomes the centerpiece of the multimodal transit center which will be the hub of the local and regional transportation network.
