The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority opened bids for an intermodal transportation facility. Bids were competitive and appear to be within budget, allowing the project to receive further consideration by the Authority.
McCarthy Building Companies bid $72,683,000 for the construction of the Regional Intermodal Transportation Center (RITC), which includes a consolidated rental car facility and a bus transit facility. Ancillary components include an elevated walkway, site work, off-site improvements and site preparations for a separately procured design-build replacement parking structure.
Bomel Construction Company was the lowest bidder for the replacement parking structure with a bid of $8,496,000. The Authority’s construction budget for the combined project components is $93 million. The next step in the process is evaluation of the responsiveness of the McCarthy bid, and subsequent issuance of bonds. Groundbreaking is slated for June 2012.
“The RITC combines the latest in seismic technologies with environmentally-sensitive mass transit and individual transportation solutions, creating a green Tri-City gateway upon which to build for tomorrow,” said Dan Feger, Executive Director of the Bob Hope Airport. “This intermodal facility, targeted to achieve a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification, actually embodies the phrase ‘planes, trains and automobiles,’” Feger added.
Upon completion in mid-2014, the RITC will provide connectivity for airport passengers, train passengers, bus transit passengers, rental car customers, and bicyclists.
