PB Named GEC For Norfolk LRT Project
February 9, 2007

Parsons Brinckerhoff (PB) has been named general engineering consultant (GEC) for the planning and design of a new light rail transit (LRT) system in Norfolk, VA.

The Norfolk LRT is the initial fixed-guideway rail project undertaken by Hampton Roads Transit and the City of Norfolk. The double-track system will extend 7.4 miles with 10 at-grade stations and one elevated station.

As the GEC on the project, PB is responsible for overall management of the entire planning, design, environmental and permitting process. PB will oversee the work of 16 subconsultants. Services will include design coordination during construction as well.

Construction on the project is scheduled to begin in summer of 2007, with revenue service on the LRT system starting in 2010.
