The winning contractor will be announced in the fall.
Separate RFPs are scheduled to be issued later this year for final design contracts for rail stations and a design-build contract for the maintenance yard. The procurement of vehicles, traction power and train control systems is also scheduled to begin this year.
Groundbreaking for the first segment construction is slated for the end of this year.
