Alameda Corridor Transportation Authority Prequalifies Teams for Mid-Corridor Design-Build Project

NOVEMBER 20, 1997

LONG BEACH : Today, the Alameda Corridor Transportation Authority (ACTA) approved a list of prequalified teams for the Mid-Corridor Design-Build Project.

The list of prequalified firms includes:  Alameda Corridor Constructors (Kiewit Pacific/Granite Construction); Alameda Corridor Constructors (Morrison Knudsen, Traylor Bros., and J.A. Jones Construction); Alameda Corridor Constructors (Bechtel Infrastructure, CC Myers, C.A. Rasmussen and Herzog); Alameda Transportation Access Constructors (Flour Daniel, Brown & Root, FCI Constructors and Ortiz Enterprises); Mid-Corridor Team (Odebrecht Contractors, Obayashi, Dillingham Construction and Modern Continental Construction) and Tutor-Saliba Team (Tutor-Saliba, O&G Industries, Parsons Corporation and HNTB).

On Aug. 15, 1997, ACTA issued a Request for Qualifications requesting the submission of Statements of Qualifications to prequalify teams interested in providing design and construction services for the mid-corridor segment of the Alameda Corridor project. Each team was evaluated based on the following criteria:  legal structure and financial capacity; organization, experience and past performance; and project approach.

“ACTA is pleased to announce this list of prequalified teams,” said Long Beach Councilman Jeff Kellogg, who also serves as chairman of the ACTA Governing Board. “Through this process, we identified teams that are capable of designing and building the mid-corridor portion by the project’s completion goal – the year 2001. This is a milestone step for ACTA.”

The mid-corridor project involves 10 miles of depressed railway along Alameda Street. The project begins at Santa Fe Avenue in the City of Los Angeles and continues southward along Alameda Street to State Route 91 in the City of Compton. It includes construction of concrete retaining walls that form a trench approximately 50 feet wide and 30 feet deep, as well as 26 highway and 2 railroad over-crossings of the trench.

Once completed, the Alameda Corridor will consolidate the operations of two freight rail carriers and eliminate more than 200 grade crossings, creating a 20-mile high-capacity corridor connecting the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles to the transcontinental rail center in downtown Los Angeles. It is estimated that the Alameda Corridor will create up to 10,500 construction-related jobs. Additional trade activity resulting from port growth could generate as many as 700,000 jobs in Southern California by the year 2020.
