Stantec Consulting in Irvine has been awarded a contract from the Orange County Transportation Authority to aid in a project aimed at increasing roadway and railway safety for North County commuters.
Canada-based Stantec's Irvine office is its largest in Southern California and is a hub to the firm's U.S. operations. Its Urban Land Engineering and Transportation teams will provide civil engineering services for an underpass on Placentia Avenue.
The project, currently in the design phase, is expected to be completed by 2013.
The development is among a number of projects that will take place along the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway Corridor, one of the three main rail freight routes out of the Los Angeles area.
Services will include research, surveys, evaluation, relocation alternatives and general program management.
Stantec’s on-call contract with OCTA will span three years and will not exceed $900,000.
RGI Utility Consultants will work on the project alongside Stantec.
Founded in 1954, Stantec Consulting serves clients in both the public and private sector, offering consulting services in planning, engineering, architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, surveying, environmental sciences, project management and project economics.
