Parsons Awarded Construction Management Contract for Tustin Ranch Road Project in California

PASADENA, CA--(Marketwire - May 4, 2011) - Parsons is pleased to announce that it has been selected by the City of Tustin and the Tustin Redevelopment Agency to provide construction management services for the $38 million Tustin Ranch Road project.

The project, located in Orange County, CA, will complete a key piece of the infrastructure at the former Tustin Marine Corps Air Station by connecting Walnut to Warner Avenues. With an anticipated 2-year construction schedule, work will consist of building a 1.5-mile, 4-lane road; deep utilities; and a bridge over the Metrolink, Orange County Flood Control Channel, and Edinger Avenue. The City of Tustin will manage the infrastructure as part of the 1,600-acre Marine Corps Air Station redevelopment.

"The Tustin Ranch Road extension has been long awaited by both residents of Tustin and those regionally who use north/south routes through the county. Tustin Ranch Road is an essential thoroughfare as the City continues to grow. This project completes a key corridor and will greatly improve traffic flow and bring much-needed relief to congestion on Jamboree Road and Red Hill Avenue for our residents and neighbors," said Mayor Jerry Amante.
