VTA's BART Phase II Project will be the largest infrastructure project to be constructed in Santa Clara County. VTA is reimagining how urban transit projects are constructed with the single bore tunneling concept - the first of its kind in the United States.
Ensuring that potential contractors understand the scope of the project, as well as the unique opportunities it will present, is of paramount importance to VTA. Highlighting opportunities for DBE and SBE, creating opportunities for potential Prime contractors to network and ensuring that all participants have access to information about registering with VTA helps us build this once-in-a-century mega-transit project.
On February 11, 2020, VTA hosted an Industry Forum for contractors, primes, DBEs and SBEs to learn more about the project and contracting details, as well as network with potential Primes and VTA Procurement. Over 400 contractors were in attendance. In the next year, VTA intends to host additional workshops to prepare potential contractors to participate in the procurement process.
