Jacobs Engineering selected by CTA for Red and Purple Modernization Program
Jacobs, with joint venture partners Arcadis and Ardmore-Roderick, was awarded a six-year contract by the Chicago Transit Authority for professional owner's representative services for the Red and Purple Modernization Program Phase One project. Phase One of RPM is the largest capital improvement project in CTA's history. The entire RPM program, expected to be completed over multiple phases, will provide much needed capacity in this growing residential corridor to accommodate current and future riders, and to deliver faster and smoother rides with less crowding and more frequent service. Jacobs will provide program and construction management services in support of the CTA for the RPM Phase One Design-Build. This support includes providing design and construction management, field support and project controls services, safety and security certification oversight, quality assurance, and construction closeout services. CTA estimates the project value at $2.1B and major project construction is expected to begin in the second half of 2019.
