The 2014 Design-Build in Transportation Conference was another huge success! This past March 19-21, 2014 in San Jose nearly 900 transportation professionals including 100+ public agency representatives gathered for three days of networking and education.
The conference kicked off with a project tour of the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) extension to Santa Clara County. This design-build project includes a combination of at-grade, open cut and aerial guideway configurations, and includes both a retained-cut passenger station and an above-ground passenger terminus station. Special thanks to the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority and the JV of Skanska-Shimmick-Herzog for hosting this great event!
Later that day, Transportation attendees joined the Water/Wastewater Conference

This session featured industry experts as they discussed DBIA's recently release Best Practices
document and how it relates to the water and transportation sectors.
