Orange County Transportation Authority Awards TRC Two Highway Projects

Company to Design Improvement Plans for I-5 and SR 91 in San Diego

LOWELL, MA--(Marketwired - Nov 13, 2014) - TRC Companies, Inc. (NYSE: TRR) has been awarded two contracts for a combined total of $8.5 million in highway improvement projects for the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA). Work on the projects will be ongoing over the next three years.

TRC has been selected to prepare plans, specifications and estimates (PS&E) to renovate the Santa Ana Freeway (I-5) stretching from Alicia Parkway to North of El Toro Road in Orange County. It is a Measure M-funded project that will ease traffic congestion by adding a general-purpose lane and extending an existing high-occupancy vehicle travel lane. The results are estimated to have far-reaching effects into other cities within Southern California including Mission Viejo, Laguna Hills, Lake Forest and Laguna Woods.

OCTA also awarded a contract to TRC for a PS&E for rehabilitating the 91 Express Lanes on the Riverside Freeway (SR-91). Located in northern Orange County, the Riverside Freeway is one of the region's most vital, and also most congested, highways in this important commuter and commercial transportation corridor. The project will remove and replace roadway pavement in order to improve safety and maintain ride quality.

"TRC is proud to work on these important transportation projects for the Orange County Transportation Authority," said Chris Vincze, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "The modernization and improvement of our nation's aging infrastructure ensures efficient and safe travel for motorists and is essential for the steady flow of commerce."

TRC has successfully delivered three major OCTA projects over the past five years. TRC was awarded the 405/605 West County Connector PS&E, which is one of the largest construction contracts awarded by OCTA, and the construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of this year. In addition, TRC has been selected to design I-5 HOV Improvement project, which is under construction. The construction will be completed in 2017.
