In light of the demand on Southern California highways, Metrolink developed the Southern California Optimized Rail Expansion (SCORE) program, which will upgrade the regional rail system to meet the current and future needs of the traveling public.  Metrolink hopes to provide a viable alternative to single occupancy vehicles by implementing improvements along its entire system so that trains operate more frequently and more reliably.


Zephyr UAS, Inc. (ZUI) is participating in this program as a subconsultant under the STV/Jacobs Joint Venture, which is tasked with SCORE Phase I for the San Bernardino Line.  Under this contract, ZUI is taking charge of studying the viability of a 4000-ft extension of Marengo Siding, near Cal State LA, which will allow for continuous train movement through the area.  ZUI will study different alternatives, develop plans, and prepare a Preliminary Design Report for the extension.

PAST AND CURRENT UAV PROJECTS

As a subconsultant to DHS Consulting, Inc., Zephyr UAS, Inc. (ZUI) is currently providing Construction Management Support Services for the expansion of the Division 20 rail yard located within the Arts District in Downtown Los Angeles.


LA Metro aims to increase service levels on the Metro Red and Purple Lines. In order to support the increase of rail vehicles and improve service times on those lines, the following improvements are needed at the yard site: widening of the heavy rail tunnel portal south of the US-101 freeway, a new turnback facility, and expansion and reconfiguration of rail storage tracks.


ZUI staff currently provides engineering design reviews in support of the projected construction date in 2019. Specific services include: constructability reviews for the final design documents; review of construction phasing strategy; attending yard allocation meetings; and providing key coordination services between LA Metro and adjacent stakeholder agencies. Once construction begins, our team will also provide resident engineering, inspection, and safety oversight services over the life of the project.
