This project will be the sixth construction project issued to bid as part of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) Red Line and Orange Line Infrastructure Improvements Program. The forum provides interested contractors the opportunity to learn more about the scope and schedule of the project, and to connect with other potential partners/subcontractors. Interested parties are recommended to attend.

PROJECT:
This large-scale project involves two major components. The first is the replacement of various elements throughout Cabot Yard located in South Boston, Massachusetts and includes improvements to drainage, track, traction power, signals and lighting. The second is the rehabilitation and modernization of the maintenance facility, originally built in the 1970's and includes a new roof, lighting, doors, and windows; improved communications, AC/DC power and MEP systems; hazardous materials remediation; installation of new gantry cranes, wheel truing machine, electronics room, access platform, spray paint booth & other specialty equipment; and an upgraded carwash. Ultimately the Cabot Yard & Maintenance Facility Improvements project allows for the safe operation, proper maintenance, and reliable servicing of the new Red Line vehicle fleet.

BACKGROUND:
To meet the goal of improving revenue service, reliability, and customer experience on the Red Line and Orange Line (RLOL), the MBTA has two major programs underway. The first program, the New Vehicle Procurement Program, procures new Red Line and Orange Line vehicles, and the second program the Red Line and Orange Line Infrastructure Improvements Program, provides for critical infrastructure improvements and signal upgrades on the Red and Orange Line systems to support these new vehicles. The Cabot Yard & Maintenance Facility Improvements project forms a core part of the RLOL infrastructure program.
