LA MESA, CA-A Boise, ID-based engineering and construction company has received a $16.7 million construction management contract to oversee a 5.9-mile extension of the Mission Valley East Trolley line.

Washington Group International Inc.’s infrastructure services unit won the contract from the Metropolitan Transit Development Board of San Diego. The total installed cost of the project is estimated at $431million.

Michael Della Rocca, president and chief executive officer of Washington Infrastructure Services Inc. says “the award recognizes our broad experience in the construction of all the elements involved here: lightrail systems, tunnels, bridges, and highways.”

The Mission Valley East Line is an extension of the existing Mission Valley West Light Rail transit line. The 5.9-mile, four-station extension will start at the Mission San Diego Station just east of Qualcomm Stadium and end at a junction with the existing Orange Line just east of Baltimore Drive in La Mesa.

The line will cross Interstate 8 with a 4,000-foot span, then tunnel to an underground station serving San Diego State University, crossing Interstate 8 again in La Mesa.

Construction is under way and will be completed in December 2004.
