The Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority Board of Directors awarded the main design-build contract for the Foothill Gold Line light rail extension to Kiewit-Parsons, a JV. The contract includes an USD 805.6 million base scope for the first nine miles of the project from Glendora to Pomona, with a 2 year contract option to complete the full 12.3-mile project to Montclair for a total contract amount of USD 1,186.9 million if additional funds are secured by September 2021. The base scope includes all elements of design and construction for the first nine-mile segment, including relocation of the existing freight track, installation of the light rail track system, four new light rail stations in Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne and Pomona, improvements at 40 grade crossings nearly half with new or renovated bridges and much more. The contract option would extend the work of the design-build team to complete the full 12.3-mile project to Montclair and add stations in Claremont and Montclair.

Construction Authority Board Chairman and Pomona Mayor Tim Sandoval, said that "This team presented the best of both worlds; the top ranked team in all technical categories and the lowest bid price based on the formula set out in the RFP for the base scope to Pomona and contract option to Montclair. I am happy with the outcome and the selected team and applaud the significant effort staff at the Authority put into conducting this procurement. Ultimately, we had two excellent teams vying for this important project, and the best proposal won."

Kiewit and Parsons have teamed up dozens of times in the last two decades to complete design-build projects, including successfully building the first two segments of the Foothill Gold Line project which were completed on time and under budget in 2003 and 2015 respectively. They have designed and built hundreds of major infrastructure projects in the last fifty years, and both are award-winning companies, providing world-renowned experience.
