TAMC Salinas Intermodal Transportation Center Wins Coveted ACEC CA Award

Congrats to the Transportation Agency for Monterey County (TAMC) Salinas Rail Extension project team for winning a coveted 2022 ACEC California Engineering Excellence Honor award and a national ACEC Engineering Excellence recognition award! The Salinas Intermodal Transportation Center (ITC) is the first project completed in the Monterey County Rail Extension Project’s Kick Start Project, Phase I, which will ultimately create a rail extension from Salinas to Gilroy. The Salinas ITC is in downtown Salinas on Market Street, a walkable distance to the Monterey Salinas Transit (MST) bus center and the main employment areas of downtown Salinas. The project included improvements at the Salinas ITC, a new direct signalized access point to downtown via the extension of Lincoln Avenue across Market Street, a five-bay bus transfer area, bike lanes and bike lockers, safe pedestrian crossings and sidewalks, and commuter parking. This station integrates alternative transportation options with a new passenger rail service to the San Francisco Bay Area with at least two commute-oriented round trips every weekday at the start of service and an opportunity to expand, Amtrak buses, MST local buses, and Greyhound intercity buses. MNS provided construction management, resident engineer and construction inspection. #MNSTransportation
