eBART - A New Technology for BART

Description :

Please join our virtual meeting as we hear Mr. Andy Klieber from MNS to present the construction management aspects of the eBART to Antioch project in Contra Costa County.  eBART is a 10 mile rail extension into east Contra Costa County. The success of the project was due to significant planning for the delivery and coordination during execution. This can be measured in the ridership so significantly out preforming expectations that an additional 900 space parking lot is now being added. The $500 million project utilized a new technology for BART - Diesel Multiple Units. The project was successfully delivered to the public through a collaborative effort involving BART, Caltrans, the Contra Costa Transportation Authority, the Cities of Antioch and Pittsburg as well as Tri-Delta Transit. The effort involved 5 BART construction contracts, 2 BART procurement contracts, 7 Caltrans construction contracts, and a City of Pittsburg construction contract. 

The eBART team won 4 awards, including the ACEC Engineering Excellence Honor award at the national level. The project also won a 2019 APWA NorCal, Project of the Year award, and 2019 CMAA Project Achievement Award. MNS provided construction management, resident engineer and systems field engineer.
