IndyGo says contractors will speed up activity on the Red Line corridor starting on Feb. 11 to cut the construction schedule by four month for the project’s utilities, drainage, curbs, sidewalks, crosswalks, signals, pavement and transit stations.
The plan is for the transit line to open by the end of the summer.
“We know the community is eager to see construction complete and have the Red Line up and operating,” said IndyGo president and CEO Mike Terry. “Acceleration means that this summer, transit service throughout the county will be more reliable and improve accessibility for all.”
Goshen-based Rieth-Riley Construction Co. Inc., which has an office in Indianapolis, is responsible for the route’s civil work, while Indianapolis-based F.A. Wilhelm Construction Co. Inc. is constructing the 28 stations. The overall bid approved in 2017 was $30.7 million.
