The Purple Line is a 16.2‐mile light rail transit line that will extend from Bethesda in Montgomery County to New Carrollton in Prince George’s County, in Maryland. The Purple Line will promote multi‐modal transportation options as it connects the travelling public to WMATA Metrorail, MARC, Amtrak, and local bus services. The transit line will be delivered by 2022 through a Public‐Private Partnership (P3) led by the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA).
Due to the nature of a P3 environment, conditions of the Purple Line Light Rail Transit Project continuously change, and the approach to building this transit line must adapt accordingly. This presentation will discuss the approach to building the project in a dynamic design, build, finance, operate and maintain (DBFOM) environment, including: aspects of the P3 Agreement; property acquisition and relocation; and design in relation to ongoing construction.
MTA and its program management consultants will examine their position at the intersection of the project, as they interface with the concessionaire’s construction and design engineering teams, multiple agencies, the public, and property owners. Through this collaborative effort, the Purple Line will provide direct, rapid and reliable east‐west transit service to connect major activity centers in Maryland from east to west upon completion.
