Redlands Passenger Rail Maintenance Facility – San Bernardino County Transportation Authority
San Bernardino California
LAN managed the construction of the new storage and maintenance facility for the 9-mile Redlands Passenger Rail Project. The project, constructed and operated on the rail corridor along IH-10, traverses the cities of San Bernardino and Redlands and provides an environmentally-friendly and cost-efficient service to thousands of residents, businesses, and visitors in San Bernardino County.
For service operation, Diesel Multiple Unit (DMU) vehicles will be used for commuting passengers. DMUs are smaller, quieter, more efficient, and less expensive to operate than standard locomotive vehicles. To keep the DMUs running smoothly, a maintenance and storage facility will be built as part of the project. The 15,000 sq ft facility and storage tracks will accommodate six DMUs. The maintenance building will be equipped with an inspection pit, pedestal and maintenance tracks with portable jacking pads, lockers, restrooms, office space, and storage parts for the vehicles. The yard includes storage and fueling tracks, a wash pad track and two shop tracks. Wayside Power is provided along the storage track and the wash track. Other features include a back-up generator and accommodations for future Zero Emission Multiple Unit (ZEMU). This vehicle is a prototype and will be one of the first hydrogen cell Multiple Units in the U.S.
As construction management consultant, LAN provided scheduling evaluation, construction project advertising, bid analysis and award, construction inspection, materials testing and inspection, contractor interface, and contract administration services.
